Tau Wire Lock Carabiner

Grivel stunned climbers everywhere with the innovative Twin Gate locking carabiners, and the Tau Wire Lock Carabiner continues to amaze. Its wire gate locks the secondary straight gate so you can use it for anchors and belays, and you can unlock it just like you'd clip a rope through a regular carabiner. This feature adds a lot of convenience when you're eagerly clipping anchors during a redpoint, so there's no more fumbling around with screw gates, twist gates, or the quadruple lockers that take so long to unlock that you start shaking.

Good biner with new innovation

I like the tau double gate wire system. It feels as safe and secure as the other double gate biners. I’d trust it with my life. Only complaint is that it would be easier to actuate if both gates were spring loaded. Only the wire gate is. The solid gate is just a loose pivot. Sometimes makes it hard to actuate the wire gate without pushing the solid gate and engaging the lock. You can’t unlock the wire gate when pressure is on the solid gate.
