Great for my kid
Review by: gzminiz, 2010-09-18
The ball lock is great piece of mind for myself and my kid is only 4 and doesn't check his own gear. Without 2 sets of eyes checking that things are locked and tied I like the piece of mind that an autolock gives.
The ball lock also is a bit more difficult for him to operate then the twist locks which is preferable, though he has never tried to undo them.
Great biner I would recommend especially to those with kids that climb

Of the three locking modes, I prefer the Lift and Twist one over the Ball Lock because it can be done more easily with gloved hands. Non-self-locking types can come unlocked, or one can forget to lock them.
The keynose feature is really nice when dealing with 5.5 mm cordellettes, as it doesn't hang up on them.

The orange auto-lockers were actually my first set of locking biners and they have been used constantly in the gym and I usually go to them first for anchors and rappelling. They have held up very well. All the other lockers on my rack are BDs and they are great too.
A recent experience made me like my Triact biners even more - I bought a pair of OP auto-lockers at the end of this past season and one of the pair has already been retired (freak torque of the auto-locking mechanism) so I am sticking with the Petzl biners or standard screw gates from now on.
best locker i've ever owned

the tri-act is sweet and it has a large opening so you can clip about anything you'll run into, mine was like 20 bucks so a little more expensive but worth it, if you play with it for a night you'll have the one handed action down no problem. All in all a pretty great 'biner

Have used this biner for about a year now, totaly worth the price paid. It's not too bulky, but is nice and big for belay duty. My rope feeds nicely over it, it's secure and I've never had problems with it not locking (as I have with the ball lock model, after a little bit of abuse... I also have the screw gate model which I use as a back up, but the Tri-Act is the one I grab first. Nice peice!
