I've never had an issue with an ATC or Grigri loading the gate. However, I did encounter that problem with the Mammut Alpine Smart. I was hoping this carabiner would resolve the issue but it is too narrow for the Alpine Smart to fit in. It will prevent loading the gate in devices that fit, but it is a little cumbersome in that the carabiner has to be opened & closed twice to get everything into position. DMM makes a belay carabiner with a plastic cover that isolates the screw gate and is wide enough for the alpine smart & is also simpler to use. I am using that instead.

After more time with the device, I find it cumbersome. It has to be opened twice to get into position correctly. I think any locking carabiner placed correctly will avoid cross loading. The small amount of safety increase is not worth the inconvenience, in ,y opinion.

This is excellent for keeping your carabiner properly loaded during belaying. The tradeoff is that it's can be a chore to get the webbing and ropes setup in the first place. If I'm going to be clipping in and out frequently, I choose a different carabiner. That being said, it's a quality piece of equipment and does exactly what it advertises.

These are awesome. Probably overkill for hanging my hammock, but they work exactly like I'd hoped--keeping the hammock ropes separate from the hanging straps. I've since purchased more for all three of my hammocks. They rock!

It does exactly what I wanted it to do, which is not rotate and cross-load while belaying. Unfortunately it's not easy to get on and off and it has pinched my fingers once or twice at the inside extrusion. At the moment though, I don't think anybody has really come out with a better solution.

Once in a while when belaying someone top rope climbing had the biner turn on me, the belay device side loading the biner! This is a perfect solution to avoid such situation! It took a little time getting used to hooking it up, but I don't ever have to worry about side loading again!

Works great for belaying, I feel very confident in using it and being belayed by such an advanced biner. Also it looks way cool and a lot of people ask about it since it's quite convenient and cool lookin!

It is safer than a more standard piece because the shape keeps the belay device in place, so no cross loading (when the belay sits side ways). One less thing to worry about while belaying a lead climber.

On the down side an auto locking twist gate would be welcome. Even worse for a screw gate, it doesn't paint the area under the screw red, so you can't tell from a far if it's screwed in properly. It functions great, but either a red warning area or a auto lock would make it perfect.

Others may complain about the 2 stages one must go through to set it up (need to open it to put it on and then open it again to get it situated because of the bar). This is easy though and once you get the hang of it, it's natural.

Awesome locking beaner!!! I recommend this version of the gridlock if you are doing any outdoor climbing virsus its magnetic twin, because the screw gate won't be affected by dirt. If you are looking for a dedicated belay beaner than this is perfect
