It can save a nut if you don't have all your non-placed nuts at the bottom of the biner.

I think you are misinterpreting the word should. Equally if you are belaying you should keep control of the brake side. Failure to do so can result in death.

I don't see how ensuring that all the nuts are at the bottom of the biner before opening it is a task where failure can be expected. I've placed thousands of nuts and haven't had a run away nut yet.

notchless ovals sound very nice, are you talking about something like the aluminum smc ?

I can't find any other notchless ovals

thanks

I use KONG notchless, the old style ones made from round bar stock. DMM also make a nice oval called the Ultra O.
