DO NOT BUY THESE!~!~!~! DANGER

I climb with these almost every weekend. The past 2 weekends in a row the nylon on the top biner has gone over the gate and unclipped itself. I thought the first time it happened it was just a freak thing but I was wrong. The nylon does not fit well in the radius of the orange biner so it can easily move causing it to unclip or cross load. I was looking at decking about 30ft each time this happened. I have read that some people changed out the dogbone with Dyneema and that solved the problem because it's not as thick, but that's expensive.

Time to look for some new draws..

Did the rope unclip it self or did the whole quickdraw unclip itself from the bolt?

@Matthew
What happened was the dogbone slid around onto the top carabiner's gate. The rope then pulled the draw in direction that the gate opens and both the dogbone and the lower draw slid off the open gate together, so only the top carabiner remained on the bolt.

I think you didn�t use the draw properly. I remember from experience, that you have to place the gate of the carabiner in the oposite direction of were you going to climb to prevent your problem.
