In all honesty, the Jake is one of the most awesome carabiners on the market! For years, the Jake carabiner has set the standard for HMS carabiners. Other belay carabiners can be loaded on the nose of the biner-- which is a very dangerous situation. However, the Jake carabiner has a shape that predictably adjusts the load, just where we want it every time.
The Jake eliminated the problem other carabiners have through its superior design. This Omega carabiner always centers your belay/rappel device so that in double-rope rappels, neither strand of rope is pinched on the spine, providing a smooth and foreseeable rap. The Jake is also supplied with an exclusive side-swing gate that supplies you with greater gate clearance. This easy to use carabiner is also available with Screw gate, Quik-Lok or the 3-Stage Quik-Lok locking mechanisms.
