Steve, You mentioned needing electronic documentation for the 540 Belay in one of the discussions a while back. Here's a link to a 2 page .pdf that appears to be the instructions in an electronic format:

This one appears to be more of a class instruction, but it has good info:

This is a .pdf on some testing that was done:

Hope these help in what you're looking for.

Please allow me to invite you to a site designed by responders for responders... the crew that is doing it is CISM multilevel trained and are there for the guys after the bad calls. It helps the responders that do not yet have a team or would be worried that they asking for help would be seen as weakness. Please join and share it when you can. As a chaplain with over 25 years of service to fire departments I am excited with it's potential to provide support.
