Topic - why should you equip each sling with a screwgate

ralphio - on 23 Oct 2012
been climbing trad for around 6 months after having taught ourselves from reading instruction books... they all suggest having your slings round your shoulders when climbing and equipping each with a screw gate. why a screw gate? if using a sling over a flake or using it as a thread can you not just attach a quickdraw to it? or is this unsafe?
