Omega Pacific Classic Keylock Quickdraws are used to reduce rope drag and to prevent accidental dislodging of protection on the lead. Omega Pacific orients the carabiners on all their standard quickdraws with the gates facing opposite each other. They feel that this is the safest method to minimize the possibility of simultaneously loading both carabiners in a gate-open position while leading routes which may wander above and to the left or right of your last placement. Under certain circumstances, it is possible for both gates to open during a fall as the draw is scraped along the rock while it orients itself below the point of protection. By opposing the carabiners on a draw, the possibility of simultaneous gate-opening in this manner is reduced. Includes 6 pack of quick draws and a free Classic Keylock Screw-Lok biner.
