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.

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
