Here's what other sites are saying:

The Petzl Stop Descender is a self-locking rappel device for use on long single-ropes descents such as those encountered while caving. Squeeze the handle and it works just like a standard rappel device. When you let go of the handle, an internal cam pinches the rope and stops your descent. The Stop allows you to easily rest during a long descent and provides a safety backup.


Originally designed for caving, the Stop Descender is a device that stops or considerably slows descent when the handle is released.


One of the most popular devices for cave descents worldwide. Offers exceptional control and versatility, while the self-braking function facilitates on-rope maneuvers.
