That extra something - the Twin Belay Pear von Beal! The superb breaking loads of this pear-shaped carabiner are not its only stand out feature; it also has an innovative closure. The Twin Gate consists of a solid aluminum gate at each end. This creates a redundancy that should prevent any accidental hanging out from the rope - a clear safety bonus! At the same time the specific shape of the carabiner prevents rope trapping and reduces friction, giving you optimal handling of single and half ropes for belaying and abseiling. Its superb value and low weight makes the Twin Belay Pear an absolute must for mountaineers and avid climbers!
