A quality twist gate provides the security features of the screw gate and the convenience of one-hand operation.

DO NOT USE FOR CLIMBING!

    The diameter of the carabiner frame is 0.28″, and I checked the diameter of 7/16 combination wrench is 0.7″, so you can use this carabiner for the wrench. Please check the diameter of your wrench and then decide it.

    I have 3 dogs all in the 80 to 90 range. Worked beautifully for them. 2 are pits so the are very strong pullers and I used this to attach them to the floor of my yukon so they couldn’t jump out when the hatch opened. Works awesome! Hope this helps

    The Aluminum frame diameter is around 1/3”.

    Yes, the carabiner could be opened with one hand. If you are not used to open it by one hand, then please use both hands.

    I haven’t used them for that purpose.I will say they hold me and I am over three hundred pounds.

    Not sure.

    I’ve been using them to climb for awhile now but I am going to up grade to triple locking biners. I don’t like these just for the fact that they only twist to open, not slide up, twist, then open.

    I would definitely say they are worth it. They are sturdy and they work great! I have had no issues with them. I will deffinetly be buying more of them.

    Yes, it can support a hammock with 1 or 2 adults in it.

    No, it’s not magnetic.

    For lifting yes. Not for a lifeline. Buy the expensive climbing ones. Don’t cheap out on safety.

    For sure

    Just so it’s not fire rated, and it’s designed not for high temperatures as would buckle and melt at 600 degree.

    No it will not

    For climbing I use brands that are well known and recognized for decades. This was a cheaper option for me to use for my dog’s leash. I personally would not use these though I suppose you could.

    Don’t know, but there is marked as ce2008
