Beal Twin Guide
A dedicated belay biner, the Beal Twin Guide features the auto-locking Twin Gate system and a secondary gate that clips through the belay loop to prevent cross loading. Because the Twin Gate system automatically locks, it reduces the risk of human error - in other words, the belayer forgetting to close the screw gate - and reduces transition times in multi-pitch climbing.
|MAJOR AXIS STRENGTH||22 kN|
|MINOR AXIS STRENGTH||9 kN|
|OPEN GATE STRENGTH||8 kN|
The Twin Gate system uses two gates in opposing directions that can be easily operated with one hand and lock automatically upon closure. Developed by Grivel / Simond, this system is faster to use than traditional screw gates, doesn't freeze in cold weather, has a higher cross-loading strength that's ideal for trad draws, and makes it impossible for the rope or carabiner to unclip itself once shut.
