Even there is a tech-note "not for pothiling", when this carabiner is used in dusty enviroments, the lock breaks. If sand or dust gets into the slit of lock's pier, it easly comes out his place and the lock doesn't works. This is a dangerous situation.
I have sin this issue in six diferent carabiners (4normal, 2screwgate) in this 8 months. Sold in Bilbao (Spain) in 2017-2018, in "Decathlon", witn serial number 008317
I am sorry to hear that the Simond Rocky D-Shaped Carabiner did not meet your expectations. This particular model is not designed for Potholing but we do have items specifically for Potholing and Canyoning on the link below.
Once again I am sorry that the Rock D-Shaped Carabiner did not meet your expectations.

Was very good just what I was looking for.
i use this as a pushchair bag holder hahaha a great help
Purchased the Simond rocky screwgate carabiner. Great price, light weight, works Perfect in every way
I bought four of these as they seemed very lightweight and easy to use. They are so light that I hardly even notice that I have them on me.
I've used these carabiners for everything but climbing (I climb free solo).
I mostly use these as part of a wilderness hammock suspension and mooring kayaks together. I've also used these to hoist up my food in bear country.
Unfortunately, on one, the locking mechanism has broken but still 'locks' when the lock is pushed up (rather than twisted up). This carabiner is now used for carrying my keys around.
The locking mechanism broke
Thanks for your feedback on the Simond screwgate carabiner and sorry to hear that the locking mechanism has stopped working. Should you have a local store, please don't hesitate to drop by and we can exchange the carabiner for you. This will also allow us to record and review your faulty one. If you purchased online, just let me know.

I am not a climber but I do play alot of sport. So far I have used it to connect bungee ties, towing connector on a child's cart and of course to secure my keys when active; brilliant.
Единствения за момента карабинер с муфа с цена около 10 лева, много лек и компактен. Имам няколко и ги ползвам за алпинизъм - зимен и летен.
Много лек, малък и лесен за поставяне в тесни клинове. Малък размер. Не може да побере много инвентар, но е много подходящ за самоосигуровка.
Karabina funguje skvěle. Otestována na horolezecké stěně.
