    Details

    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.

    Small: convenient sometimes

      The small size is pleasing, sometimes.

      However, sometimes it is too small. For example if you want clip a long cord on it by folding it up, it may not fit inside the biner.

      Furthermore, it you can't screw it shut in one motion like a black diamond locker. You have to manually push it 14 pushes with thumb (I counted) to close it

      Adequate

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have several of these that I use for hammocks and other assorted tasks (mostly my car keys) but not for actual climbing. The opening is a little small and the twistlock will stick on occasion.

      Small, but packs a punch.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love the smaller size of these carabiners, and definitely like the blacked-out versions. It's true that the locking mechanism is a bit deep, but I've never minded that much. I've used them for hammocks, slackline, climbing, and generic utility.

      Screwlock is not user friendly

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      You have to turn the screw 9 times before it locks. This one just can't compete with a BD or Petzl biner. While other ones can be loosened a couple flicks of the thumb this one requires you to unscrew it one turn at a time - and, I counted, there's 9 turns.

      Mid/Small Locking Carabiner

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I prefer twist gate biners and this one is super rad! It's nice and small so I use it with my Sterling self/anchoring system on my harness. It is small enough to fit on a chain link atop a route without taking up too much space or getting wedged in too tight. It seems like you have to twist it a few more times than your average twist gate, which may be annoying to some. Overall, I am happy with my purchase.

      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

        • 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.
