Woah. It's got hole to put the rope in and a button to adjust the tension.

Sounds uber complicated.

The Zap-O-Mat has been around for a few years now, 4 or 5 if I remember rightly, Itīs a single rope development from the TRE Sirius which was for doubles and works on the same priciple as a guide plate. The Sirius was a pretty good device for its intended purpose and the Zap-O Mat possibly not! Iīve never seen one in use and I live a couple of hours from the factory and climb regularly in the area.

Yup, you remember correctly Jim. A while after TRE ceased production they licensed the design to Edelrid, who for some reason only brought out a single rope version.

I own one-got it back when i was reviewing product- used it for awhile. Pretty neat, similar to the TRE (as mentioned). The double rope version was in development for a year or two, but was pulled for one reason or another. Probably anticipated sales not being worth it.
