Review by livextreme41 on May. 26, 2009
Great for use with anchors and belay devices (the rounded shape minimizes friction). For sport, I keep one for anchors, one for my belay device, and the other as a utility locker with my rescue setup. The round surface is perfect for the petzl tibloc. Smooth and easy manipulation as well as easy to feed rope through whether a belay device or munter hitch.
This is pretty heavy, and for the weight, i prefer a bigger utility biner on longer climbs. The gate opening is a little small
If you want a big one for the same weight and half the price, get a BD rocklock.

Just a top notch Piece of gear!
Smooth action, long life, Key Lock, quick on the rope, and quickly locked. red is dead line let's you know it's unlocked. Great for Top rope anchors and belaying.
Not the lightest or the cheapest.

The petzl attaches screwgate is very smooth and hard to jam. Good for anchors or belay devices.

Review by diebetes on May. 07, 2008
Strength. Can be used to belay with, either with an accompanying belay device, or using a munter hitch. Key lock gate reduces snagging.
Sometimes the thickness of these biners is a hindrance (at anchors).

Review by ericswanson on Jan. 19, 2009
Nice wide rope-bearing surface. The red line that tells you when it is unlocked is also a nice, quick way to check, even if you are not quite close enough to do a touch test. I got these free from a buddy who works at a hardware store, so I guess they are popular enough to be used by non-climbers.

Review by jciccotti on Feb. 27, 2008
smaller and lighter than a regular pearbiner, but still useful for munter hitch b/c of larger head shape; action on the locking mechanism is really smooth

Review by duncanlennon on Nov. 29, 2008
Very smooth action and finish. The shape beautifully accommodates clove hitches.
A bit heavy.
None in terms of HMS. The OP Jake is also good but heavier.

Review by rickyM on Mar. 27, 2011
very easy to use. Red open gate level very useful. Good shape for belay bina
scratches/ gold cover disappears after a few belays.
If used for large groups, the screw gate drops off the silver bar (after hundreds of opens and closes)
Beware of fake copies of this product. Only buy from trusted Petzl suppliers
