    Great for Leftists

    by av8orariel
    true one handed auto-locker
    large for great rope handling
    simple safety check

    This biner is great for those of all political affiliations, but amazing for Left-handers! As a left handed belayer I am able to operate (lock and unlock) easily with either hand using the "push in and twist" instead of the "down and twist" of most autolockers. I've used this as my main belay biner for years and it still auto-locks smoothly. The "green for go" ball is also a good visual check of system safety.
