        Comments about PETZL Am'D Ball-Lock Carabiner:

        I finally had a chance to try this out today while climbing indoors and felt incredibly secure with the auto-locking feature of this carabiner. It's nice to know that when I let go of it I have a good safe lock. It's not going to accidentally open and doesn't require me to unscrew anything either.

            • Where auto lock is a plus
            • Where locking is required

            Comments about PETZL Am'D Ball-Lock Carabiner:

            I use this carabiner as my connection from saddle to rope for tree climbing along with a few other apps. I find it is the best product for my application. Requirements of strength and double locking feature are met. The locking method is easily operated with one hand and has never come open on its own while moving through a tree. Some twist lock types have come open on their own. I feel this is the safest and easiest to operate on the market today.
