Overall a great piece. I have been using mine for setting up my achors while trad leading. The nice low weight for a locking biner makes putting a few of these on your rack a no brainer. I really like the key lock gate system which I think makes it a sure buy over its $7.50 lesser sibling.

Would give it four stars but I think it would have to be in the <50g range for weight to receive that rating.
