CAMP HMS Belay Lock
Here's what other sites are saying:
The HMS Belay Lock Carabiner from C.A.M.P. features a small inner gate that closes over the belay loop once the biner is in its optimal position for belaying or rappelling.First, attach the biner to the belay loop and let it close. Second, open the small gate and insert the belay loop. Third, open the main gate to its full position to fully compress the small inner gate and insert your belay device and rope and the same time. Tighten the screw gate.
Cross-loading your belay carabiner can be very dangerous, That is why Camp created the HMS Belay Lock carabiner that has an extra arm to make sure the carabiner stays where you put it. Feeding off of the main gate's spring, the secondary gate firmly spans the carabiner and secures itself into two dimples along the spine to anchor the orientation of the biner. The HMS shape gives you plenty of room across the top to handle a rope and tie off if needed.
