The Grivel Clepsydra L is a large twingate carabiner ideal for belaying and abseiling. It has a second wire gate which isolates the belay loop from the rest of the carabiner to prevent it cross loading or turning upside down when belaying and abseiling. It also has the patented Grivel double gate design which Grivel say is safer than a screw gate as it can't accidentally come undone.

Customer Reviews of Grivel Clepsydra L
My son has started belaying me. This is obviously scary so I wanted to reduce the risk to a minimum. Having tried and liked other fiendish twin gate carabiners from Grivel I thought I'd give the Clepsydra a go.
It ticks all the boxes. The wire isolation gate stops it from cross loading or going upside down and he won't forget to screw it up because you can't. And it's a joy to use for me too.
