What is this device he's using to "self-belay"?

Is it safe? For ice, and rock?

Never seen this before.

I couldn't see it well enough to tell for sure. My guess would be from the way he continues to pull the slack through that it might be a Petzl Basic. As far as I know, no device is totally safe and in conjunction with icy ropes I'd use some form of backup.


Edit;
After enlarging the video I changed it to a Basic.
