Achieved using a combination of the proven I beam technology and a little lateral thinking the Neon Screwgate significantly adds to the armoury of the modern climber by allowing more safe screwgates to be carried without a weight penalty.

The Neon keeps a very usable gate clearance, and with its small neat Keylock nose aiding access, it makes clipping and unclipping no toil – even with gloves. And the Keylock nose is always especially valid on a screwgate making that difficult belay arranging easier with no hook to catch on slings or ropes.

And as with all the Wild Country screws the Neons screwgate is strong enough to resist inward pressure as well adding an extra safety dimension. An amazing step forward and a true weight breakthrough, at 43 grams the Neon Keylock screw ditches the weight of a screwgate making for safer climbing with less penalties!!

    Super slick little locker

    by andreas_unterschuetz
    Nice Gate Action
    A little small

    I bought a couple of these babies to use for multi-pitch sport routes. My only complaint would be they are on the small side for a locker. But unless you need to stuff a giant rope in it, it should be able to handle almost everything you'd want. I love using it as a belay biner with a 9.6mm or smaller rope. If you're looking for a Locker to slip into the power point of your 1" webbing anchor, I'd suggest something bigger. But for almost any other application, these little beauties perform like a charm. And you get a locker at the weight of many of the non-lockers on the market. They're tough to beat in my opinion.
