Simple and attractive biner with a small gate openingIt's oval, so the gate opening isn't its selling point. It's also pretty strong for an oval (stronger than the lockless Black Diamond ovals I have). It's compatible with Petzl's Pirana, which is really cool since that device seems to be really finicky about compatible biners (Attache and William, both by Petzl). I have the screwlock version, which has been working fine for me. The screw travel is still smooth and reliable. I haven't used the twist lock, but I'm sure it's even better. I'm glad I purchased this piece of equipment, especially since I was on a budget at the time.
