    Details

    Built for belaying.

    Metolius gave the Element Key Lock Belay Carabiner a pear shape with round bar stock to make belaying effortless and secure. The keylock gate keeps this Metolius carabiner from snagging on anything when you're clipping and unclipping gear. Metolius made this carabiner just large enough that you can use it with a Munter hitch, but not one bit bigger, so you don't have to carry around any extra aluminum.

    Not overly impressed

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    First off I do love the texture and size of this biner. i bought this for belaying with my GriGri, it is too thick for the GriGri hole making it hard to use. I also am not a fan of the locking screw. I does hold locked well, but unscrewing and screwing take far too much effort. Unfortunately this biner turned into my water bottle clip because I don't like to use it climbing.

    Good for Belaying

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    So when any climber looks for a biner they want something light and easy to use. This is easy to use but it is NOT, I repeat, NOT light. I would not recommend this as a locker for anchors or taking it up a multipitch route. It's a good TR belay or single pitch belay biner. Other than that it's great to use and the screw gate hasn't gotten stuck either! Also it is on the smaller side so great for people with small hands :D

    Excellent points, wish I had seen review earlier. I originally bought a couple for anchors, (right before a trip and it was all the local shop had on hand), and now I'm trying to relegate them to belays. Small, but not light; definitely "bomb proof". Takes a good number of twists to fully close, more so than the Black Diamonds I have. Profile works smoothly when used in an auto-block. Again, a great BELAY biner. :)
