I came up with the idea of using a rappel ring and locking carabiner for a belay device.
The use of a rap ring and a locker for a belay device is not new. It is something I have seen now and then over the last ~20 years, and has certainly been done long before that.

I believe a single link of the right-sized chain was a popular option back in the day.
