Topic - HMS, Offset D- or Oval for GriGris/Ab plates??

kyaizawa - on 17 Oct 2013
It's probably been asked many many times before, but I can't seem to find the threads, so here goes...

What do you use to attach GriGris and Fig8/ab plates to your harness?? And more importantly, why?? Would the same argument/reasoning apply to other mechanical devices like the Shunt and the Stop??

I know something like the Petzl Freino is the recommended karabiner for GriGris, but I've heard equally many arguments for ovals, and against HMS's. I'm pretty sure all of the above are ok (Petzl just specify a "Locking Carabiner"), but what is "best practice"??

Thanks in advance for your help!!
