These sound perfect for multi day mountaineering. Just was wondering, with how small the gate is. Has anyone tried to use this on a picket. would it fit on a standard MSR picket, or is the basket configuration and gate opening too small?

Responded on

Based on the dimensions of this and the eyes on the picket itself, it should fit the MSR pickets okay, but the gate just strikes me as much smaller than I would want to use if I was looking to easily and quickly just slam a biner into place, especially if I was gloved up.

I've never used them on a picket, but the opening is significantly smaller than something like a WC Nitro. I'd estimate about 6mm smaller. With that said, they're still easy to operate with or without gloves. I love them.
