The Petzl Freino is designed for use at the crag with a single rope, to add extra friction during a descent without extra equipment or needing to open the carabiner. It's ideal for smaller climbers working with heavier partners, and although it's a little heavier than the standard carabiner, it works well with most belay devices and can be used as a standard locking carabiner.

The best belayer carabiner ever made. Easy to use. Perfect for the grigri. Recommend!
Works great with a GriGri+ as it holds it in a nice position (carabiner can’t rotate).
I love the twist lock as well as it’s quick and secure and is quick to operate one handed.
The spring loaded friction area is great to add extra friction if you are belaying a heavier climber as my daughter (50kg) uses this to belay me (95kg).
makes belaying with my grigri much easier. holds the grigri and rope in right position
