Gate screw ruins it.

The size is nice, but as others have mentioned:
- The screwgate squeaks and feels shoddy.
- The screwgate becomes hard to unscrew after the biner has been weighted.
- It requires about twice as many turns to screw/unscrew compared to other popular screwgate lockers.
- If there's snow around the screw anywhere, you're going to have quite a tough time escaping from the biner's clutches.

Responded on

Agreed. Also even if it's mildly cold the screw feels extra sticky.
