Rated 3 out of 5 by from There are better... I got a couple of these to act as belaying biners. They function well enough (not my least favorite screwgate), but there are a couple things that Metolius could improve upon.,,,,For one, these take about a year and a half (not counting holidays) to lock. And although it has a nice feel in your hand when clipping, the gate opening isn't that big. Lastly, it's a little on the small side for a belay biner (hard to belay with a munter).,,,,If you're looking for a belay biner, go for the BD rocklock or the Petzl attache. Cost is about the same, and they both have a wider gate opening and minor axis for nice rope play when belaying. And they'll spare you the 50 turns it takes to lock one of these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These things are horrible At our gym, (where I work) we bought a bunch of these as belay carabiners staring out. At first they seemed ok, but as time went on we avoid them at all cost. seriously, if they were giving them out for free i'd only take one or two to leave as booty gear. ,,,,the gates on these have a tendency of getting stuck. Not a good problem to have for a carabiner. they seem to small. and they don't seem to feed very well, though they aren't bad. Go for a BD Rocklock instead which is much better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from best belay biner for grigri This is my favorite belay biner for the grigri or grigri2. It's small and thick enough to keep the grigri at the pointy end and keep it from getting cross-loaded. The biner moves with the grigri.,,,,I wouldn't use it for cleaning as it's too thick and will take up a lot of room in the bolt or chain and I won't use it with an ATC, since it's rather small. ,,,,It's also a key lock and won't catch or snag.,,,,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well... It works I have used this biner on multiple climbs. It works okay as a belay biner but that's about it. Its got a really small gate clearance which can complicate matters a lot while climbing. Its pretty much just a belay carabiner because of its size and locking sluggishness. And of course its size can make it really hard to hook in even just for belaying. In my experience however it's size doesn't seam to be too much of a problem with an ATC belay device. So depending on your gear it might work for you, or it might not.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from if you need a 'biner for your keys that can also be used to tow a truck, this is for you So call it overkill, but I got this for my keys. Then i saw a force rating of 23 kN (Thats 5170 lbf for those of us who like converting units) believe it or not, during the snowpocalypse of 2013 i actually used a climbing rope and a subaru and this carabiner to pull a ford escape out of a snowdrift.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from sturdy 'biner I have a half-dozen of these that I use for setting top anchors and my PAS because unlike others, they NEVER come unscrewed on their own. The mechanism can be finicky--but I find it SAFE--it does not come open until it is unscrewed sufficiently.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Green Biner! Very stylish biner with smooth locking gate. I've only used it in climbing gyms so far and it hasn't given me any problems. If you like carabiners, the color green, and not falling to your death then you'll be fully satisfied with this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not into the rough lock, very stiff and bulky I got this product along with the Personal Anchor System, and definitely would not use it in combination for belaying up a second, setting up a rappel, or any other climbing purpose - except maybe attaching my shoes to my rope bag. It is too wide to clip in easily with very little clearance. Plus, the lock seems very sticky and the feel of the 'biner is not ideal either. I would go with the Black Diamond Rocklock or a Pacific Omega locking 'biner for a comparable price before this product.
