Positron Review 5 out of 5 stars

Review by: msiddens, 2008-05-14

Best locking 'biner for it's size. The keyless design, weight and economic cost all position it as the must have.

not bad, but nothing special either 3 out of 5 stars

Review by: qwert, 2008-05-14

Nice biner, and the fact that it has a keylock nose is very welcome.
Not ultralight, but also not heavy.
The price is also ok.

But on mine the locking sleeve got quite loose after a few years. Not so much that im concerned about it, but enough to make it a little bit annoying. This is something i have so far only seen on my positrons, whereas other biners (Kong, Camp, Wildcountry, ...) dont show such a behaviour.


snag free 4 out of 5 stars

I have a couple I keep on my harness for various things that need locking. Snag free nose and light weight is nice. I do however, like the little mammut locker more.

The Best. 5 out of 5 stars

Easily the best small sized locker that i have used. It handles really well, sits neatly, and the notchless nose is great. I use it on everything that i dont need a pear/hms or larger biner for.

Great lightweight keylock nose'd screwgate. Handy for increased security on questionable clips, lightweight enough to carry a couple of them. I use this biner to attach my grigri to my harness with, as the low-profile cross section reduces the grigri's tendency to cross-load the belay biner.
