Summary

Found these great biners from a friend!!!

Pros

  • Cuts down rope drag!!!

Cons

  • Cost

Greatest biner ever made for cutting down rope drag. The little roller works great for rope drap on routes that zig zagĀ  or over ledges. Use a little longer runner on your quickdraws and never worry about it again. Also the locker works great for setting up a top rope on fixed belays.

Description of DMM Revolver Screwgate CarabinerThe Revolver Screwgate is the carabiner that a lot of people have been waiting for and it is now finally March 2008 available. It features the same friction reducing pulley as the wiregate version, but this model will be fully certified as both a carabiner and pulley. This will make it ideal for use in hauling or rescue systems where complete safety and legislative compliance is required. The Revolver was the reason for I-Beam technology being concieved because this process crucially allows the body to deal with the stresses involved in placing a pulley into a carabiner whist remaining light enough for general use.FeaturesThe 7075 series pulley runs on a dry lube IGUS bearing, which is seated on a high tensile stainless sleeve and spindle. This will continue to rotate with loads up to 11Kn before any deformation occurs.In the unlikely event that the pulley does deform - and we have not seen one case yet - the biner still acts as a full strength 24Kn carabiner.It has been anodised for protection against the elements especially coastal and rigouirous mountain enviroments.LubricationThe IGUS bearing will run without lubrication, however like all gates and barrels a periodic clean and oil will prolong the units life.
