Rating: rated 1.5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $20

Summary

It's a great idea But the bottom Grid lock is too small. It's very hard to clip into your harness when seting up a belay. It's great if you're standing on the ground but on a simi hanging belay or hanging forget!!!

Pros

  • None

Cons

  • Cost too much and the bottom gate is too small and very hard too adjust on your harness wi

Don't buy it, too hard to clip in to your harness, and adjust for the belay!!!
