The best for compact, lightweight anchors.


  • Size, it's small
  • Weight


  • Wire gates are bad for some uses
  • Too small

I use them to rig static ropes to bolts in caves. They are so small and lightweight, I hardly feel them in my kit.  I do not use them  for draws due to the small rope well, or for situations where cross loading is possible on the wire gate.  

I definitely recommend these. They are lighter and easier to use than most.
