My understanding was that this was only an issue (being dropped suddenly) when the belay was hanging/semi-hanging and therefore not possible for the belayer to get to the opposite side of the device (ie the side that of the device where the rope loops around the carabiner, not where the rope enters/exits the device)? In this situation I thought this could be over come by redirecting the belay rope above the device (+/- prussik).

Please correct me if I have misunderstood this, as I was intending to start using one.
