I purchased 5 of these. Unfortunately, they have serious quality problems.
Three of the five have burrs on the inside from the manufacturing process (i.e. it appears that the sharp fin where the two sides of the press met was not completely ground smooth).
I'm no expert but that kind of sharp edge, no matter how small, must be really bad for ropes and slings.

Wild Country's Titan Screwgate Carabiner is an updated classic making this easy clipper even smoother and enhancing it's all-around status as the best basic biner available, the original Titan gets a Keylock nose. The thimble on the gate always stops short of the nose making sure it cannot be over-tightened.
Due to its simple and reliable design, the Wild Country Titan Keylock Screwgate Carabiner has earned its place as a Wild Country's best selling screwgate. This year's model is made even better with a snag eliminating keylock nose and a slightly wider D-shape. Plus, even the most budget conscious climber will appreciate the price.
