The Rhino is a cleaner, simple, solution to the rubber bungs used to modify belay biners to prevent cross-loading with certain belay devices.The horn prevents assisted locking belay devices rotating off the top bar and on to the spine reducing the risk of cross loading, it also works well with selected DMM pulleys. The Rhino is not restricted to assisted locking belay devices: it works brilliantly with standard devices. The full cross section of the top bar means greater wear resistance, and smooth operation in guide mode usage. The horn makes identification by feel on the rear gear loop easier, and the clean nose design provides snag-free loading and unloading of ropes. The big burly top bar is contrasted by DMM's signature I-Beam construction on the non-rope bearing surfaces resulting in a total weight of 72g.

mike-athens - 56 2018Lightweight and Prevents Cross loadingGreat biner for belaying with a device like a Grigri. It prevents cross loading on the Grigri side, though it is true that it can still turn horizontally in the harness belay loop. Lightweight and the auto lock works well, fast and clean.
natafencing - 09 Nov 2015Fiable.Lo compré para usarlo con el Grigri para que no se me girara, pero he de reconocer que aun así se gira alguna vez. Por lo demás, buenas prestaciones y buena marca. El cierre va genial.
