    You can never be too safe.

    The Edelrid HMS Strike SafeLock Locking Carabiner has two independent, automatic locking mechanisms to make your climbing adventures doubly safe. Its SafeLock device consists of an intelligent slide-gate locking mechanism and a spring bar that also prevents cross loading. The keylock nose makes clipping and unclipping a breeze. This versatile HMS carabiner is useful anywhere in the climbing world, from top ropes at the gym to roping up on glaciers.

    safe but awkward

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It's a cool feeling when you realize that this just won't open once you shut it unless you really want it to - that added level of security is great.

    Of course since it won't open unless you really want it to, you have to put in a bit of effort to clip in. I'm imagining this will be less awkward as I use it more.

    Wish they made a steel version like the "Bruce" biner for lower wear as a belay standard.

    Great idea, poor execution

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The idea of a redundant locking mechanism that doubles as an anti-crossloading feature is really neat. I've been using this biner for several months and I'm able to open/close it with one hand. However, after a couple weeks of use, the gate started to stay open until you manually shut it. Once shut and locked, it's safe?but it's a little disconcerting to see your gate flop to and fro in the mean time.

    I attempted to contact Edelrid twice with no response. Go with something else.

    a little clunky

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    It is super safe because it would be completely impossible to both move the wire and the finger lock at the same time (unless you were trying to) to get the rope or belay device out of this beaner. That makes for it being a bit more annoying to put on or take off a bunch of times in a row. there is a dexterity learning curve for this device that I am still working on (just to put it on and take it off).

    When I learn that, I would say this is a really safe/easy belay beaner.
