DMM Rhino Screwgate Carabiner, 3 kb

Looks good. A question about design philosophy, given that this is primarily a belay carabiner, why not build into it one of those devices for stopping it flipping round?

In reply to UKC Gear: We have been using this karabiner since July, our only criticism is the weight, The wear has been negligible (we normally manage to trash the DMM Sentinel karabiners in less than 6 months) We normally belay and abseil with an ATC but have used several types of semi-automatic belay devices.
We both think the karabiner is quite excellent.

They probably do more than pretty much anyone else in the country, at least if they are still climbing as much as last time I saw them in Pembroke.

It does have one of those devices, when used with assisted braking devices like the grigri (which is what it was designed for). The spikey bit stop such devices moving around the crab (as does the screwgate, presumably).
