Lock it and trust it.
Rappel into the unknown world of slot canyons with the CAMP USA HMS Keylock Carabiner locking you to your rapping device. The large opening reduces rope snags while you work down (or up) a big cliff and the screw-lock gate improves security when you change pitches. The strong and durable HMS works well with a Munter hitch or standard belay device and is useful when you need to rig up another trusty anchor.
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My favorite carabiner. Larger than I thought it would be but extremely light weight, which were both pluses for me. Only complaint and reason for 4 stars is that when its cold and wet (around 30 degrees) the gate will stick open sometimes. This happened when I was ice climbing and only during one route (thus far). This isn't a big problem because it's meant to be locked when in use. I could however see it coming off a harness loop if not careful.
I like the ease of the locking nut. Good and light weight
