I would use a carabiner from REI. The ones they have are for mountain climbing. Strong as hell.


Thanks - the more I look at the BR carabiner, I know of one thread where the small hook broke off and I wonder about the weld joint where the little "mushroom" at the top of the swivel is attached. (Photo again from another thread on BR.)

Is it really important for the carabiner swivel?

Yes, it prevents the mount point of getting loose since the hook swivels and doesn't create resistences.

That is a gate hook. Different.
