A larger ball for easier operation.

This particular carabiner (HMS)was specially designed by Petzl for SherrillTree. It features a larger push button ball making it much easier to open and close, especially while wearing gripper gloves. Petzl makes a similar version of this model used by climbers world wide but with a ball about half the size of this featured model.



I use this larger size carabiner to differentiate it from the Am'D and also for emergency descents on a single rope using a Munter Hitch.



The gold color makes it easy to see and adds an air of wealth (gold color) the climbing rack.



BTW- always mark your carabiners with colored tape. That way if your climbing partner is short an essential life support carabiner, you'll more than likely get it back when your partner sorts out their gear pile after the climb.
