Rated 5 out of 5 by Quin Vaporluck
A buddy kept recommending these to me and I kept thinking, "yea, how much better can they really be?" Now that I own a few, I understand why he kept bugging me about it. They are quick, light and about as easy to use as a non-locker.

Nicely sized HMS carabiner. Base accommodates clove hitches, munters, and super munters well, especially for rope diameters smaller than 10mm - which seem to be the norm these days. Nice and lightweight. 4 Vapors are the same weight as 3 Mini Pears, giving me an extra locker on my alpine rack. 30% extra friction, as BD claims, is great for technical climbing, but not as desirable in crevasse rescue applications where loss of input force due to friction is a big concern. For rescue applications, or basic glacier travel, consider a carabiner with a more rounded stock.

Good light locker. Size falls in between the Mini-pear and the Positron. Really can be used anywhere you need a locker; anchors, belay, rappel. Rope surface about a mm less across than Mini-pear, and 1mm more than Positron.

This was a gift for my son. He loves it and uses it to hold all of his keys as he has several.

One of the best, lightest lockers out there. Great for anchors, won't freeze up. Reliable. Go get a bunch of them.

This my favorite locker because it's light, works well with gloves and does not freeze. It's the best all around locker in the market.

I use this locker for my ATC and GriGri and it's a great all around locker. I'm more a fan of screwgates because they simpler to use and force you to pay more attention to the belay setup. This one is super light and just works like you want it to.
