VaporLock Magnetron Carabiner is rated out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Alex from Excellent autolocker, nice size While I rarely, if ever, forget to lock a carabiner, it is an added measure of safety not to even have to think about it. Awesome, easy to use triple-action auto-locking function, much slicker than twistlocks. This is the perfect size for most applications- you'll never need the larger Rocklock unless it is as a master biner or in some other unique function. Two minor downsides: 1) Not for winter use- I liked it so I tried, but it is prone to freezing up and is hard to operate even with light gloves; 2) Compared with a barrel lock carabiner it is slightly harder to get off your harness since the locking mechanism needs to be opened.
