How does catch-and-hold work?

Press the Base Button at the bottom of the wall to activate Catch-and-Hold Mode. When you fall, TRUBLUE iQ+ will catch-and-hold you for up to 30 seconds. During this time, you can continue climbing at any point or simply wait for the time to expire to lower. When you reach the top, press the summit button to immediately begin your descent. If not activated, TRUBLUE iQ+ works like a normal auto belay.

Press the Base Button at the bottom of the wall to activate Catch-and-Hold Mode.

The TRUBLUE iQ+ marks the largest leap forward in auto belay innovation in over a decade. Designed for both indoor and outdoor climbing walls, the iQ+ is the first and only auto belay device to offer advanced features like catch-and-hold technology.

As the premium model in our iQ series, every TRUBLUE iQ+ is handmade in the USA and engineered to last. The patented magnetic braking system is friction-free, delivering high cycle counts with low maintenance requirements and minimal wear on internal parts.


  • Catch-and-Hold Technology: Allows climbers to rest and project routes.
  • Built for indoor and outdoor use.
  • High cycle count, minimal maintenance, and low cost of ownership.
  • Smooth descent: TRUBLUE is the only auto belay to utilize magnetic braking technology. Magnetic braking is extremely reliable (even in wet conditions), friction-free, and self-regulating, providing the same rate of descent regardless of a user’s size or weight.
  • Unassisted Ascent: Rather than pulling climbers up the wall, TRUBLUE gives users the most authentic climber feel, giving users the freedom to climb under their own power.
  • Improved Durability: The iQ series is equipped with wider webbing, a built-in back bumper, and replaceable mount guard.


  • Meets international safety standards: TRUBLUE is designed for climbers and engineered for safety. We engineered TRUBLUE to meet international safety standards for fall arrest devices.
  • Extensive safety testing: For over four years, the TRUBLUE iQ series has undergone extensive safety testing by an ISO 17025 accredited company specializing in product testing.
  • Shock Load Certified: TRUBLUE Auto Belays are certified under EN360:2002 to protect against shock loads. In climbing, these can be caused by dynamic movements.
  • TÜV SÜD tested to 10x Class A
