I bought four of these as they seemed very lightweight and easy to use. They are so light that I hardly even notice that I have them on me.
I've used these carabiners for everything but climbing (I climb free solo).
I mostly use these as part of a wilderness hammock suspension and mooring kayaks together. I've also used these to hoist up my food in bear country.
Unfortunately, on one, the locking mechanism has broken but still 'locks' when the lock is pushed up (rather than twisted up). This carabiner is now used for carrying my keys around.Brand response :
Thanks for your feedback on the Simond screwgate carabiner and sorry to hear that the locking mechanism has stopped working. Should you have a local store, please don't hesitate to drop by and we can exchange the carabiner for you. This will also allow us to record and review your faulty one. If you purchased online, just let me know.

I am not a climber but I do play alot of sport. So far I have used it to connect bungee ties, towing connector on a child's cart and of course to secure my keys when active; brilliant.
