Gridlock in use.

Responded on

Amiright in thinking this pic shows the backwards use vs. intended? I know it's not a big deal and nitpicking, but the conversation came up today and I was curious.

No, this is the correct way to use the gridlock. The harness should be in the smaller end of the figure 8 shape, this is intended to keep the carabiner from crossloading, if you had the harness on the other end it would be pointless.

Responded on

Acutually prop, it would big a big deal, for example if your belaying a leader and he needs slack fast to clip the draw, becasue the loop is so small it might casue the rope to jam or get stuck allowing the leader to fall or even deck.

Agreed with Reed. Picture shows the correct way to use this biner.

Unless you would be using a grigri. Then BD says to flip it around - big part through the belay loop and grigri on the small end.
