CAMP USAHMS Compact Screw Gate Carabiner

No more snag at the crag.

The CAMP HMS Bet Screw Gate Carabiner's keylock gate eliminates the standard snag-on-everything notch that you find on most carabiners. Thanks to the smooth nose profile, this CAMP carabiner slides smoothly on and off your rope, belay device, anchor, or whatever else you need to clip into. CAMP stuck with a simple, functional, and time-test screw-gate design for the HMS Bet Carabiner, so you can stick with what you know and never have surprises on the rock.

Go to Belay Biner

    Great quality, durability and weight from a nice sized belay biner! It is my go to and doesn't leave my harness.

    Nice smooth locker.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I use these HMS compacts along with the HMS nitros and Petzl attache lockers for my glacier/crevasse rescue kit. They are lightweight, strong, and I know i can trust them.

    Awesome huge biner

      Great carabiner. Super smooth curves handle rope and knots great.

      Great for everything

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I was told to get some more of these at a rescue clinic and I am glad I did! Way easier for all different kind of knots and a breeze to belay with.

      Great for belaying

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Great biner for belaying. Very well made and has a wide opening for ropes and other hardware. Smooth locking mechanism, smooth/round so it doesn't catch on things, and is surprisingly light for the size. Highly recommended.

      Perfect Size for Belaying.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I'm very happy with this biner. It's a great size for a belay carabiner, large enough without being obnoxiously big. The screwgate is also super-smooth.


      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This biner is the smoothest piece of hardware I have used for rappels and belays. The overall shape is ideal with the curved spine. With no sharp corners the rope has no choice but to move through smoothly. The gate opening and keylock nose make for easy clippings.

      this carabiner has a nice large basket. The surface is super smooth and wide. This reduces overall rope friction which is fantastic. I love this biner. The one flaw the screwgate is soft and dents or scratches against rock easily. good placement prevents this easily .

      Weight measured

        My scale reads 86.5g which = 3.05oz.

        On a picture you can see that strength of this carabiner is 21/9/6 kN, while in description is 24/8/8 kN!?

        Solid and big basket

          I've been using two of these for a few years now and they have been great companions in anchor building and belaying. It has a surprisingly large basket that is maybe only surpassed by something like the omega pacific jake lockers. The rounded and relatively symmetrical shape of the basket is nice for accommodating multiple cords and slings without them all bunching up into one corner like on a more pronounced D shaped carabiner. The locking sleeve isn't quite as smooth as a petzl or DMM but it's been trouble free and easy to use. It comes with my personal recommendation.
