Mammut added a rubber internal gate to the Element Smart HMS Carabiner to keep the orientation correct so you never look down and see in horror that you've cross-loaded your carabiner. Such an act greatly decreases your carabiners strength, so it's a good thing that it'll never happen with this 'biner. Plus, the Element Smart includes a twist-lock gate and snag-free keylock nose to make it quick and easy to use.

Great Belay Carabiner

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

This biner is great for belaying! It has a very easy-to-use auto-locking feature, as well as a swing gate that keeps it from crossloading during use. Though I have disliked a lot of auto-lockers in the past (because of being too sticky and hard to open), this one is great; it has a very smooth action and doesn't snap closed too aggressively. If you're looking for an awesome belay biner, this is it!

This Biner is Perfect.

Yep--I got this biner for belaying. And it's perfect for that. I hated having to constantly check my belay device biner for crossloading, etc... and now that I have this biner, I never have to. All moving parts have smooth action, and the entire unit has a very high-quality feel. Plus, it's auto-locking, so you can't forget to close it.
