Not triple action.

When you read the name of this carabiner, you assume it means tri (triple) act (action). It is not. There are two actions. The barrel slides up, a move that is a bit difficult to do one-handed, and then you rotate the barrel. The gate will now open. Two actions of the fingers to achieve gate opening.



The barrel is metal. That means a sharp edge at the top. I have personally never been cut but I have heard of a few reports. I have heard a few reports of the space at the top of the barrel jamming from bark fragments too, but that might be a result of climbing corky-barked trees or scaly barked trees.



I have bent the barrel at the top making it dysfunctional. The carabiner rubbed against a branch as I climbed past it.



I do not think the carabiner is cheap or weak. I'm just not sold in its design for active tree climbers.
