Clepsydra Twingate Carabiner

The Clepsydra Twingate Carabiner features Grivel's secure locking mechanism for reliable belaying and rappelling. This locker's unique twingate design uses two opposing gates for a secure lock that retains a similar size to non-locking carabiners. Grivel added a wire gate to the carabiner's belay loop to prevent cross-loading while belaying or rappelling.

Bought for my second

I've put it through the wringer

I use a 9', 9.1mm dynamic climbing rope PAS with roughly the center figure-eighted to my harness at the tie-in. One end is set up with a Kong Slyde and a gold twist-lock biner for quick attachment and easy reach adjustment. The other end has my Clepsydra with an ATC. I keep the former clipped on my left harness Loop and the latter to my right. Makes for easy attachment to anchors on one side and my rappel is already set up. I like to do extended rappells usually with a hollow block third hand on my right leg loop. For belaying a leader I snap the Clepsydra into my belay loop. Also works well with my Grigri+. This works well and saves time and reduces fatigue induced errors on multi pitch trad climbs where you are on and off belay frequently. Also, it requires me to put a load on my ATC and test my rig before rappel while clipped to my anchor. I made this second setup for my son.

Perfect for ATC side of my PAS

I've put it through the wringer

I really like this biner with it's keeper wire at the narrow end for holding my ATC in check when 3 pitches up and my tired fingers get fumbly. Also this biner fits the Grigri+ No worries with cross loading or unscrewing either. Very easy to use and easy to get the hang of one-handed.
