- Good belay biner Review by novicecrackclimber
I have 3 of these biners. I use one to rack and belay with an ATC-guide another to rack and belay with a Trango Cinch, and the last one is part of a small ACR anchor kit.
They are on the low strength side compared to other carabiners, however I don't know what they really test to, so they are most likely comfortably stronger than they say they are. (like all carabiners and climbing equipment should be)
The "red ring of death" is a nice touch and a great way to see from a glace if a biner is locked. I may have to think about trying to add something like that to my other non-petzl screwgates with nail polish or sharpie. Also the screwgate doesn't take too many or too few rotations to lock and unlock, its just right. I remember one of the Metolius locking biners to have a screwgate that took tons of rotations to lock and unlock. Safe, but excessive.
If you want a larger one, the petzl williams screwgate is great. (Posted on 1/27/13)
- Compact Review by Burk
The draw to this carabiner is both a con and a pro: size. For its size, the carabiner is actually has a lower strength rating than carabiners that are of comparable size (i.e. ~80 grams). The Attache has strength ratings of 23kN, 6kN, 7kN, while other similar carabiners have ratings around 24kN, 8kN, and 8kN or higher. With that said, the Attache strength ratings are plenty strong for normal climbing purposes.
I bought this carabiner to use on the end of a 6mm rope tied with prusik knot for fast clipping once reaching the top of a pitch. I also went with the Attache because it is compatible with the Petzl Reverso belay device (non-Petzl carabiner will not fit into the smaller hole of the Reverso).
One last thing to think of when buying the Attache: what are you using this for? If you want a compact belay device or a carabiner compatible for the Reverso, this is a great carbiner. It would also work fine as a toprope anchor, but a more durable locking carbiner like the Omega Pacific ISO Locking Standard D Carabiner would be a better investment.
Lastly, if you want a carabiner to put a lot of slings and ropes through you may want to consider another locking carabiners like the Petzl William, the Omega Pacific Jake Quik-Lok, or the Black Diamond Rocklock. These have a slightly larger clip area and gate clearance (21-25mm compared to the 20mm of the Attache).
Overall, a great carabiner for belaying or creating anchors if you are not going to be doing tons of toproping. (Posted on 3/20/12)
