    Iris HMS Locking Carabiner

    It's always nice having Cypher's Iris HMS Locking Carabiner attached to your climbing harness's belay loop. Its round rope-bearing surface helps the rope flow smoothly for belaying or rappelling, and despite its compact size, the surface accommodates munter hitches. The Iris comes in a standard screwlock, an automatic twistlock, or a super secure three stage lock, and the carabiner features a keylock nose for snag-free convenience.

    Gotta love it

    I like this carabiner because it's simple, easy to use, and aesthetically pleasing. Has a good gate opening so it's all around a good biner.

    Perfect for your PAS

    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Like the review below, I really dig the bright color which makes it super easy to find when needed. I have several Cypher pieces and am impressed with their quality and finish.

    Quick find on my harness with the color

    I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I use Iris HMS for all kinds of anchor building, from connecting them to the bolts for a top rope or using them in a platform build belay system. Besides feeling solid, I like the bright colors that help me locate them quickly on my harness. Side note, I haven't seen too many floating around out there so it's easy to head home with all your gear at the end of the day since they're very different from those other REALLY popular biners everyone has.

    Awesome cheap autolocker

    I've used it several times

    This is an awesome, affordable auto locking carabiner. It does exactly what it's supposed to, and is super strong! It being a local (to Utah) company is awesome as well!

    I've put it through the wringer

    As with some others I bought the auto twist lock as a belay biner. Its nice to know that as long as the belay device is loaded correctly, your biner is always locked and ready to go.

    Perfect Belay Biner

    I've put it through the wringer

    For the price and the gate action and size - it can't really be beat as a belay biner!

    Can't beat the price

    I've used it several times

    3 stage locking biner for 13.95.... Mic Drop. It's under 3oz, has a major axis strength of 28kn and once again is a 3 stage locker for 13.95. I use it as a belay biner or any spot an idiot could somehow mess up a screwgate locker. I really only buy locking biners that have screwgate mostly because of cost. Now I have a 3 stage and didn't spend almost $20.


    Is Cypher UIAA certified? I haven't seen anything indicating so.
