Use the Locking Mini Pearabiner with your belay device or Munter hitch for extra security

Offset D shape and cold-forged 7075-T6 aircraft-quality aluminum frame offer super strength

Beefy 12mm rod stock creates a bigger rope-carrying radius, allowing easier, smoother rope management

Sleeve locks on the gate, not the frame, so it can't be over-tightened when the 'biner is loaded

Locking sleeve is designed with wide, smooth top edge to reduce the chance of it snagging or hanging up ropes and harnesses

An ok product. However I would use an auto locker for use with a belay tool and BD's own Positron for use with anchors. The 22kn strength is lower and others on the market.

I like mine but have relegated them to racking gear or holding webbing preferring to use the key lock, stronger and lighter Positron for most load bearing uses.
