Interestingly enough, I actually had two O&O biners open up on me the other day. I set up a slackline with solid gate ovals connecting the slackline to my master point. When I walked across the line I noticed both gates were open as they were being compressed together by the slackline. The back and fourth swinging of the slackline pushed the gates in the open position and the biners were further compressed which held them in the open position. Granted I still had 2,700 lbs of strength which is not something I am going to exceed on a 50 foot slackline. But it was interesting that I was able to inadvertently open two O&O oval solid gate biners.
