Belaying Carabiner

This is a great carabiner for belaying. The fact that it has a round stock means it will add friction to the rope and wear less on the rope. Yes it does have a somewhat slow locking action. However if you put a few drops of gun oil between the locking sleeve and the gate all you have to do is flick it and it will spin open and shut on its own.

Responded on

Gun oil? Many many brands of gun oil also contain solvents, so you'd better use a lubricant that won't damage nylon (as in the belay loop).
