UNIX - Delete Line with "/"

I'm writing a shell script that creates a file with the output from, ls -1F. It contains directories, with, "/" appended to the names. I'm trying to delete those lines in the output file that are flagged with "/". However, I'm running into problems when using sed (because the character I'm searching on is "/"). Does anyone know the correct syntax in sed or an alternative method to accomplish this?

You can use other characters as delimiters in sed:
ls -1F | sed 's#/$##'

you can escape the / character:
ls -1F | sed 's/\/$//'

ls -1F | sed -n '/[^\/]$/p'
