Breaking a biner 4-Mar-2013 At 10:36:43 AM JMK
This is a question for all u scientist and engineers out there.

On sat I clipped a ringbolt that caused the biner to press against the rock as there was a bulge at that point. I was concerned as I thought this might cause the gate to lever open and the snap the biner in the event of a fall. So I swapped the draw with a small scrwegate, which I flipped upside down - this caused the spine to press against the rock.

Question: does maintaining the close loop with a screwgate change the strength at which the spine might break?
