Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spendy, but useful when you're belaying someone heavier than you I got my Freino after struggling to lower my heavier boyfriend with a gri-gri after climbing. I had tried plenty of things to increase friction to a point where he could have a smooth ride back down with varying degrees of success but the Freino solved the problem perfectly. The extra bend in the rope created when using the Freino is just what we needed. He feels more comfortable, I don't get burned hands, things are faster, and it looks awesome. Its solid and secure and I trust it completely. Great combo with the gri-gri.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This pony does just one totally awesome trick so this biner was designed to be used with the grigri, BUT, it's even more useful when combined with a standard tube style ATC like the BD guide ATC. Why? Because you can lock off a hanging partner by clipping the rope through the hook for more friction. the added bend in the rope binds the rope and lets you relax a bit instead of cranking down on your break hand like usual. it gives you the simplicity of a standard ATC with the lock off convenience of a grigri.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from You probably don't need this Unless you are a SPI trying to impress another SPI the re-direct hook is only going to succeed in twisting up your rope. If you're a small person lowering a large person then get belay gloves and some better belay technique, it'll serve you better than this pricey device. This locker is a little small for someone with large hands as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keeps top set ups neat Bought this in advance of an SPI course. It works very well, only took a little getting used to as the grigri doesn't slide down very far so opening it up is tricky. When setting up the grigri to lower from top belay situations while others were messing with where to put the redirect carabiner I just hooked this in an was ready to go.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not vital, but definitely amazing. I use it mainly with a Petzl Grigri, and the added control on descents is untouchable compared to the Grigri's lip alone, a hip, or even a straight second carabiner. It also provides a perfect fit to the Grigri making set-up\break-down effortless and keeping everything in place securely for your ride up while belaying a 50 foot whipper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for ropes skinnier 9.8. This device creates an extra friction point for lowering folks on skinny ropes. I can't see using a 9.5 without either a pair of good gloves or a Freino. Plus, it's mildly entertaining to watch other climbers try and use it for the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Helpful for heavy (heavier) climbers This is fantastic to belay with if my climber is 170+ lbs (with a gri-gri). The extra bend gives a lot more control. The only downside is weight; I wouldn't bring this with me if weight was at all a consideration.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from They should add another clip to everything. It's really not as fantastic as everyone makes it sound, although I admit, it's pretty handy. I like it, but is it worth the extra cost? I guess that depends on how much you use your grigri.
