To be honest, the Jake is one of the coolest carabiners on the market and, for years, has set the standard for HMS carabiners. To start with, its shape orients the load, predictably, where we want it every time. Other belay carabiners can be loaded on the nose of the ‘biner … a very dangerous situation.
The Jake eliminated this problem through a superior design. It always centers your belay/rappel device so that in double-rope rappels, neither strand of rope is pinched on the spine, ensuring a smooth and predictable rap’. The Jake is also equipped with a truly unique side-swing gate which provides you with greater gate clearance and ease of use. Available with Screw gate, Quik-Lok or the 3-Stage Quik-Lok locking mechanisms.

Best biner on my rack!By: Patrick Donnelly on 7 June 2011I love this thing! It was the second carabiner I ever bought, and it's by far my favourite!
Hmmm...By: Phil Ward on 6 June 2011Actually, to be honest I just find this weird. Perfectly fine biner, but the side-swing thing messes with my head everytime I open it!
