Loving using this for my keys, the build quality is amazing.
I love the design of this carabiner. It is exactly what I was looking for. I would highly recommend this if you want a sleek and stylist keychain.
Hardin was easy
Never used a carabiner before. Not the look I find attractive -- you know keys dangling. Except the Hardin so nicely designed and executed, for me, makes an EDC a CDC (certain day carry in a context when having certain things readily handy and adds a touch of "pop". I didn't know what the word meant. So I looked it up. Why is it called carabiner? How curious: The word carabiner entered English some time around 1915, during World War I. The word ultimately has its roots in the German word Karabinerhaken, meaning “carbine hook”—a hook used to connect a soldier's carbine (a type of rifle) to a strap. In English, the word was shortened to carabiner. Ironically, I purchased two different James Brand carabiners just for several items I use for the firing range to keep those items on-the-ready. Who knew? Plan to purchase several more but they're sold out, so I have to wait them out...C'mon TJB change sold out to buy now so I can.
Well designed and well built carabiner
I got this clip for my truck key fob and the few keys that I carry. I liked the design, because I frequently detach the key fob when I go running and thought this design was a clever way to separate the fob from the rest of the keys. It works well for this. Action of the spring loaded gate is smooth and works as promised. Light weight and looks like it will hold up under repeated use. My only complaint is that the caribiner doesn't automatically latch and unlatch to my belt loops. I wear a belt often and I seem to be fighting for real estate. Maybe with practice, I will improve my technique.
