Persons with muscular, skeletal, or other physical disorders should consult a physician before using the Redpoint Auto Belay Descender. Consult a physician if there is any question about physical ability to safely climb or use this product.
Do not expose the Redpoint Descender Auto Belay device to environments with prolonged temperatures greater than 185° F (85° C). Do not expose the Descender to a corrosive environment. Always remove or seal the unit during trailer transport. The auto belay devices internal parts should be protected from dirt, salt and water. Do not install where the unit or line can come in contact with an electrical source. Any Redpoint Descender that shows signs of excessive wear, deterioration, malfunction, or insufficient retraction force must be removed from use and marked as “Unusable” until returned to an approved service center for repair.
The performance of the brake mechanism will change slightly over the life of the auto belay device. Once the brake pads have worn in, descent rate will be slightly slower than when the unit was new. This change in performance is expected and normal. The brake pads will produce an intermittent sound when the line is slowly extracted.
