I bought a couple of locking revolvers for a trip to the gunks where there are a lot of traversing routes and overhangs. These worked out perfectly. Strung together three pitches and literally no rope drag after 200 ft of couple 30 foot traverses, roofs, etc. Gray Dick said use double ropes. This was a less expensive and lighter way to to deal with rope drag. I bought mine on sale for $25. I really like them but not for $50. I think it will help next time I do cat in the hat at red rocks when you run the traverse and the last pitch together.
If you have ever tried to pull a large person out of a crevasse, you may have encountered some serious resistance, this pulley applied at the right spot could save you lots of effort. The reduced friction is key and I love this biner. Essential piece of equipment in a crevasse rescue kit.
When used for tether Zip Line / Tension Diagonals across swiftwater missions, the built in pulley reduces friction allowing faster line times, therefor increasing safety of rescuers by reducing the amount of time in debris filled. moving water. Model with larger Gate opening would be nice
I use this as a haul pulley in a Z-Rig for light & fast mountain climbing. When it's just me and a bud, they're fast & quick. Funky shape makes kind of useless as a replacement in all situations.
I use these for my toprope setup, and they are fantastic. They lock super smoothly, and belaying on them is a dream. They look pretty cool too.
This carabiner does not work with the tibloc for a rope grab as well as this pulley is not as efficient as some other pullies you can get for around the same price range, for instance the rock exotica pulley. Overall, the idea was good but the product is overpriced and inefficient.
