It gets the job done but is nothing special. The notch in the gate makes getting rope or webbing in and out a pain. This is especialy bad because it is a small carabiner. Also because the caribiner is not rounded it does not work well for setting up top rope. The only upside is that it is cheap. If i was to buy this size locker again i would just pay the extra money to get hte positron locker because is has a notchless nose.
