Might be far easier and safer for you Patto,

I think the climbing community needs to be very careful about telling people they should be using guide style devices. Lots of people don't realise how difficult a procedure it is (for some people) to unlock and lower smoothly if needed
.. Another person got dropped just the other day from an incompetent belayer using a guide device to belay from above on a multi-pitch route..
