The new Mammut locker is pretty cool, but that old Marwa is a work of art!

Stubai Austria stamped on the other side, no strength ratings. It has a beautiful patina and the screw gate is brass. No wear marks at all anywhere on the carabiner!

Nice Brian! I have a few of those weird "fat D" shapes in a non-locking version. They weigh a ton and a half.

I loved this black anodized Clog locker to death. This design featured a locking barrel that would spin freely when in locked mode and not jam tight.

Dig it, the BD "Gridlock". Looks like a nice solution for minitraxion /anti-crossloading apps:

My favorite locker is the lightest one available. Locking carabiners certainly have their place but I think they are overused. Do you realy need locking biners when you clip two bolts at the top of a sport climb and lower off....I think not.

Opposite and opposed, so I agree with you.
