Mini Pearabiner Screwgate Carabiner is rated out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike from The Best! This is the best locking carabiner for guiding on the market, by far. Here's why: 1. It performs the normal functions of a pearabiner - you can use a munter hitch, rappel and belay with two ropes evenly. 2. It's light and small - but not too small to get ropes out of easily. 3. When using the ATC in Guide mode, this carabiner gives a smooth belay. other carabiners are either too thin and it is hard to pull the ropes through the device; or the carabiner is nicely round, but a huge carabiner. 4. The gate stays closed better than the Petzl Attache and other lockers on the market...but it doesn't get stuck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Daniel from I use this biner every climb I climb. I don't use double ropes like the other reviewer, but it seems like the pear shaped biner does what it is designed to do. This biner is designed to function differently than a round/old school biner. I use this in conjunction with my ATC Guide and GridLock biner. I own the GridLock, RockLock, Positron Locker and VaporLock. They all serve their purpose and I typically use this Mini Pearabiner to hold the rope in my ATC Guide as a belay from the top (the GridLock holds the ATC Guide to the anchor/masterpoint).

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tony from Missed details I use this type of carabiner exclusively for belaying and rappelling. I frequently employ Autoblock belays. The inconsistent cross-sectional shape results in binding when used during auto blocking. Round is still best... All the way around... From nose to hinge. The asymmetric shape also pulls rope into the corner. Not so good with two ropes. Again... Binds and causes friction between strands. Good call on screw gate, size, and key lock features.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Eric from great biner A great alternative to a heavier full size pear without much sacrifice of rope surface. I use this with a ATC Guide and a figure 8. Heat seems to transfer better on long rappels than on other I-beam lockers that are lighter. Also used a friends gri-gri and a Mammut smart and the rope surface and overall size works a well as a RockLock, (has about 1.5mm less surface on top rope surface). Overall a great pear biner.

Rated 3 out of 5 by David from Decent, but I wanted rounder The choice seems to be between this and a Rocklock. Obviously, there's some difference in weight, but the stock on the wider end of the Rocklock is fully round, whereas it's a little more flat on the Mini Pearabiner. Makes it a little less useful as the rope biner while belaying two from above, as the rope doesn't move as smoothly. Otherwise, it's a good addition to the kit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gavin from great belay biner Perfect for belaying or rapelling - the large basket fits any rope cleanly, and the largish size helps dissipate heat. A bit heavy to carry for anchor building, but I always have it on my rack with my ATC.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stephen from Very Satisfied. Your 'Biners serves a duel role with my SaddleBack briefcase and CamelBak backpack for mountainbiking. That's an actual term! MountainBiking.
