DMM Carabiners Ultra O Locking Carabiner-Gunmetal-Screw Lock A322. Perhaps multi day ascents sac hauling portaledges and extreme dehydration (eek) are not your bag but that doesn't mean you should turn your back on the oval biner design: far from it. At some point all of us will need to use a pulley system most likely in a rescue situation. Oval biners are important because they allow pulleys to sit in a correctly loaded and equalized position. The symmetrical shape also stops them shifting under load and potentially dislodging a marginal gear placement. The locking gate adds a final element of security to the system.
