With all the scouting my boys do, we use a lot of carabiners. I saw these gearlocks d-rings and thought maybe they might work, too. I liked how many came in the package, so picked it up for the kids to try out. They are made of some very strong plastic. They are approximately 2 inches by 1 1/2 inches in size and have a push release on the top to open them up. I can't easily release it and open it with one hand, needing two to push the button and open it, so the convenience is not quite the same as a carabiner, but they do stay shut and work well for their purpose. They also have a slot where you can slide a strap through, making them perfect for adding to the outside of your gear or pack. Or you can slide it on your belt, if the belt is not too wide. The maximum load for each clip is 25 pounds, so don't think you can use this for heavier gear or climbing. But for Scouts, it works great. The boys can easily use these to attach things to their daypacks or hiking packs. They are well made, but definitely not as strong as I had hoped they would be. I guess I am used to the stronger metal carabiners we use for everything, but for lighter items, these will work great. And getting 12 of them in a pack, there are plenty to work with for now. #RankBoosterReview #sponsored #Weareal #gearlock #dring #tacticalgear #gearclip #dringgearclip
