The Grivel Lambda HMS Twin Gate is a dual gated carabiner for preventing accidental unclipping. Look closely, because there isn't just one. One bent gate and right in front of it (at the exterior) is a wire gate. So. Fancy. Not just that it's incredibly safe, as they open in opposite directions. Climb, climb with your favorite twins.

Nearly perfectI adore this biner. It's incredibly easy to use, has a huge gate opening, the curved gate keeps the rope from handing up cross-loaded, and it's well-rounded for easy guide mode belaying. It really only has two shortcomings, which are both rather small nits. 1) I like the pear shape of the Twin Gate HMS better for a belay biner (thought the Lambda is overall a far superior locker). This one tends to pinch the rope up in the corner a little, which creates more friction than is really needed. 2) It's a little on the heavy side. But then, what do you expect from the first generation of a truly new and innovative design? All in all my favorite twin gate belay biner.
