- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
If you are looking for a good locking biner the Jake. is the one for you! I have the screw gate version of this and I love it. When I first tried it out I noticed that the gate doesn't open straight in like normal, it actually swings open at an angle so that when the gate is fully opened it doesn't hit the spine of the biner, and can actually swing open further, allowing for a wider opening and easier clipping and unclipping than your average full size locker. This thing is awesome, definitely check it out.
