Description

It’s all about the size of the strength in the ‘biner.

You’ll want to applaud Metolius’ ingenuity when you rack up the Bravo Key Lock Screw-Lock Carabiner. In the interest of keeping things compact, Metolius built the Bravo to weigh in at a slim 43 grams—even though it still maintains a target strength of 25kN. Whether you’re setting up a complex anchor or just hooking up your hammock at camp, you’ll be glad this burly ‘biner doesn’t bog down your pack with unnecessary weight.

Here's what others have to say...

ok

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased these to put on a dogbone and use as quickdraws with lockers. Maybe wasn't the smartest engineering idea on my part. They take a long time to screw/unscrew (as noted elsewhere) and are tough to clip into. So, the lockers are fine but it was my fault for using them for this purpose.

Good carabiner, but...

It is definitively a good biner, but for the same weight, I would prefer Camp Photon or Climbing Technology Passion. I thought the Metolius too small in general, with small gate opening and with little "internal space".

Screw action takes forefer

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Just a right size, great weight and profile. Feels bomber (as always when using Metolius hardware).

And sooooooo slow screwlock action. It takes forever to lock or unlock it.

It is good when you need a bit of extra safety (e.g., when you want to KNOW that your locker will not open by an accident by moving back and forth along some grainy rock).

I would prefer CAMP Photon screw locks to this for most applications.

upd 2014-08-07. After using a pair of these for year or so I updated the rating (increased to 4 stars). It is a next to perfect locker for anchors - ultralihgt, no bulk, screw action adds peace of mind. The most important "cool feature" - it has a very convenient shape to be put on and off to/from any anchor chains/links/etc. Grab 2 of them to your favorite crag to rig an anchor above your next project.

Awesome Mini Locker

If you are looking to add a small locking carabiner to your rack definitely check out the Metolius Bravo Key Lock Screw-Lock Carabiner. It is super small, and very lightweight, and even comes in an all black or "Murdered Out" color scheme. It's kinda hardcore.
