DMM Revolver Screw Gate Locking Carabiner


The DMM Revolver Screw Gate Locking Carabiner is now a well-established part of a comprehensive Trad leading rack. The carabiner uses rolling friction rather than the sliding friction of the rope over the bar typified by a standard carabiner. In this case the rope rolls over the pulley wheel which means much less friction is created. Less friction means less force holding the climber back, which makes upward progress a lot easier. Since the rope rolls over the roller, there will be less wear and tear on your rope which will increase its working life considerably. Also, by reducing the friction the forces involved when a climber falls are more evenly distributed throughout the system, resulting in less force being inflicted on the last piece of protection placed. If this last piece is marginal, it could be a very real benefit.

 

Please note that the Revolver is not recommended for frequent use lowering situations. In these instances you should choose a suitable pulley or connector which can handle the wear.
