The Petzl Stop is a self-braking descender for single rope.
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.
You'll be set for long descents with Petzl's Stop Descender rappel device. Designed with an internal cam, you can use this as a standard rappel device, or release the handle and let the device pinch the rope to give you a chance to rest before finishing the rappel.
