The method Lyric described for clipping is not as safe as the conventional method of hanging the draw on the bolt first and then clipping the bolt. If you blow the clip while the draw is on the rope and not the bolt, the draw will fall down on top of your head after you fall, a big problem if you are not wearing a helmet.
To answer your question, the wire gate biner is meant to clip the rope into, while the straight solid gate goes on the bolt.
