Lock malfunction
Used for 7 to 12 months
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

Once again I am sorry that the Rock D-Shaped Carabiner did not meet your expectations.

Great climbing kit
Purchased the Simond rocky screwgate carabiner. Great price, light weight, works Perfect in every way
Used for 7 to 12 months
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.
Very lightweight
The locking mechanism broke

Hi there,

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.

Many uses

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.
Лек, компактен и много достъпен карабинер с муфа
Used for More than 1 year
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.
Карабинер с муфа
Used for More than 2 years
Много лек, малък и лесен за поставяне в тесни клинове. Малък размер. Не може да побере много инвентар, но е много подходящ за самоосигуровка.
Used for 3 to 6 months
Karabina funguje skvěle. Otestována na horolezecké stěně.
