HMS Bruce Steel Screw FG Locking Carabiner

Just like a boulderer training to bump two grades, Edelrid's HMS Bruce Steel Screw FG Locking Carabiner beefed up its durability to stay stronger and last longer on the climb. It won't wear out and rub down like alloy carabiners, and the screw lock ensures simple security. Edelrid added a spring bar to hold belay devices in place so the rope doesn't cross-loading.
  • Steel locking carabiner is beefier and longer lasting
  • Screw lock gate is simple and secure
  • Keylock nose eases unclipping and cleaning
  • Spring bar holds belay device in place to prevent cross-loading
  • Item #ELR004D

Not compatible with Gigajul belay device

I've used it several times
True to size

Use the edelrid gigajul belay device and was very disappointed when I discovered their bulletproof carabiner is too wide to activate the auto-blocking feature. This all steel carabiner is actually wider and results in even less brake assisting friction than the bulletproof. Looks like it will have to be an aluminum belay biner for the time being. Currently using the Wild Country Ascent Lite but I've been told the edelrid HMS strike's all work as well.

I've put it through the wringer

The Spring bar is pretty darn weak on this. It seemed stiff enough out of the packaging but after climbing on it a few times it's not holding up. I like the concept and the fact that the carabiner is a steel biner but the spring bar is of poor quality.

The BEST belay carabiner

This thing is solid, no wear shown at all after a year of non stop use. I’m at the gym at least 5 times a week. The screw gate barrel still spins nice and smooth too. Very snappy gate spring makes it feel safer too. I can’t say anything bad about this biner. Get the Jul 2 also, that’s my preferred belay device to use with it.
