Description

One of the lightest lockers out there.

When is a locking carabiner lighter than most non-locking carabiners? When it’s the CAMP-USA Orbit Twist Lock Carabiner. This auto-locking biner pairs great with an auto-locking belay device, and the Orbit excels at the crags as well as it does in alpine terrain.

great

These are really lite and work great. I use them in Aftghanistan for my job. They still lock quickly even after a bunch of dirt, mud, rocks have gotten in it. love them!

Awesome biners. Not sharp like some claim.

These people are crazy. There is ZERO chance these biners will cut your gear. Gear nerds are notorious for being the biggest bunch of chicken sh*ts in the climbing world.

These biners rock. Great size and sweet action.

Wouldn't let a rope or slings near this thing.

I just ordered 2 which arrived today and I wish I had read the first review before I did. The edges really are sharp, which is not only inexcusable but unbelievable. The previous reviewer wasn't kidding when he said you can cut yourself with this biner. It probably wouldn't happen through casual handling, but you wouldn't have to work too hard to make it happen. And who knows what it might do to nylon? I'm not going to take that chance; I plan on returning them as soon as I can. Why a company as reputable as CAMP would produce such a thing is beyond me. I'm not sure if they were designed that way, or if someone at their factory in China fell asleep at the deburring machine.

I wouldn't recommend this biner

I am a recreational/technical tree climber, facilitator and instructor. I recently bought a CAMP USA Orbit Twist Lock Carabiner. It looked like a good, light-weight auto-locking utility biner at a great price.

My main complaint is the extremely sharp edges, both around the sleeve cutouts that allow for passage of the noses when opening, and along the two horizontal grooves in the sleeve grip.

Some of these edges can break the skin. I wouldn't recommend using this biner around any life support rope without modification. I'm going to try some steel wool to take the edges off.

Hi there! I just want to know if the twist lock is a good idea for a beginner climber to have? Please let me know. Sorry if it sounds ridiculous, but I did say beginner. Thank you!

When my friend started climbing I had to keep reminding him to lock down his carabiner, and it seemed like he forgot to do it 50% of the time. I got him a locking biner like this one to make sure he would be safe, and he loves it. I think it would be great for a beginner to use.

Thank you!!! All I needed to know. I can't wait for my first climb!

An odd new use of this Carabiner

I have a 120 Alaskan Malamute that undid every clip I used to tie him out..He would get loose,take off,and was very hard to catch..
This locking Carabiner was just the trick to secure him outside on a cable..
It slips completely around his collar,and locks in place..Now no matter how he twists,turns,or paws at this new setup,he does not get unhooked..
It solved a real problem for me,and is another great use for this product....
