jake is jack

Don't like them.... of ALL of my lockers i've used (am using) over the past 8 years of climbing - THIS is the only one that has given me trouble. i have 3 of them... 1 is an auto-locker - no problem with that one... the other 2, screw locks... problems.

1 of them the e-clip that keeps the screw-lock from falling too low on the biner body, fell off. It's a pain when the screw lock jams on the biner body.

the other consistently gets jammed from falling on it. the ONLY think i can figure is that when falling on the biner... it flexes the biner body thereby misaligning (i.e. jamming) the screw-lock threads when the gate is locked shut. I never tighten the lock ... just turn it to where it stops. no other biner i have has ever done this.... only the jake. and i've seen OTHER jakes do it as well.

the jake is now relegated to carrying my camera on my harness. lol

OH one thing though...the gate opening and the fact that it's offset is nice...

I was always told/ and do turn screw locks a half turn back after being locked all the way, that way they don't get stuck

Never needed this "half-turn back" on these units, as they have unscrewed each & every time, even after several falls on a climbing rope.
