great for belaying
I like this biner for the ease of locking and the overall size. One of my concerns is that the lock does not come completely cover the top of the gate, it leaves some space (maybe a millimeter). I also do not like the fact that the lock is plastic, which if used incorrectly could break. I know it sounds like I am dogging this, however, the relative weight, and Petzels gate, make this a worthwhile purchase.
