I am sorry boys but, those biners are loaded from several directions and the main tension is not along the axis line where it should be.

Edit to add; since his biner failed while slacking and not in climbing, this could also prove that notch on the gate may not did not engaged with the pin as I had been saying in the LAB.


correct loading ( A)
Multi directional loading ( B)

Multi directional loaded and crossloaded are 2 different things. Crossloaded in my experience is the spine or gate perpendicular to the load.

from a standard D biner
Strength major axis open 9 kilonewtons
