It's not used to actually lower off from. You thread the anchor above, then as you take the draws off as you come down, you clip your rope into the biner so that you don't swing out. It's not taking taking your weight as the top anchor is. Even if it does open and your rope comes out, you'd be clipped to the other rope as your lower off anyway, so you wouldn't swing a dangerous amount.
