/ Dear DMM could you make
If you want to come up with a new idea then a gate that can open from the nose side (like normal) and the tail side, so you dont have to spin the biner around after you place a nut.
I think something like this was revealled at the outdoor roadshow this year. There was something in the UKC hardware report.
Must admit, that's not super high on my wish-list, it's not that much of a hardship! ;)
DMM used to make an equal D krab, still using them for wire racking.
It is annoyingly hard to tell with end opens, time to buy some nail paint perhaps.
I know it's all down to personal preference but the best racking krab for wires for me is the Stubai Easyclip. It's not got a wire gate, but the gate has the notch, not the nose, so wires never get hung up. I've never dropped a wire in 20 years of using them. I used someone else's wires recently and dropped a couple just up pitch two because they got hung in the gate.
There's some on an auction site at the moment as part of a quickdraw. I'd buy 'em up and bin the tapes and other krabs just for the Easyclips. Awesome.
