      Comments about PETZL William Ball-Lock Carabiner:

      I bought this because it was the only biner at my local shop that would fit with a Gri Gri. It's a decent biner, but the ball locking system doesn't lend itself to one-handed operation. My BD Twistlock and OP Jake Quik Lock are much easier to use one-handed.

      I like the Petzl William series, but would stick with the simple screwlock or the Triact-Lock.

        Comments about PETZL William Ball-Lock Carabiner:

        I climb an outdoor wall at a local camp. I decided to try this product instead of the spin gates. I have not been disappointed. After reading the other comments on this product, I was a bit apprehensive. I'm happy to say I was worried about nothing. I did not find any difficulty operating this product single-handedly.

        Overall, I was pleased and have reccommended it to my friends.

          Easy to use and safer than a twist lock. The only downside was mine came in purple.

          Easy to operate when you get used to the button
          Auto locks with the button as an extra safety mechanism
          It works well with the Petzl Gri-Gri, many other biners too thick
          I use it for my main biner off my anchor
