Here's what other sites are saying:
The wirelock gate and kinked backbone of the DMM Shield make it an eye catching biner. These features are not only for show they make the it easier to handle and safer to use. The patented Wirelock clean nose means that it wont snag on bolts, wires or tapes, plus the narrow nose profile allows you to clip small pegs and bolts with small hangers. It is almost impossible to cross-load the biner and very hard to load it away from its spine. Because of its construction, it is both a light and strong carabiner.
The Shield is the strongest and, probably, safest wiregate biner from DMM. The good size, ergonomic shape, and low weight make this a great biner.
