      Comments about Genius Carabiners:

      I can't explain why the previous "advanced" reviewer considered this "difficult to use." It is a basic carabiner with an innovative twist. The basic carabiner gate can only open to point where it hits the carabiner body. This limits the size of ring or line to which you can snap the carabiner.

      The Genius carabiner has an angled hinge which causes the gate to swing to one side of the body and allows you to snap to much larger rings or lines.

      I have a 1/2" anchor chain on my 51' sailboat. My basic 5" carabiner does not open far enough to clip onto a chain link. The 5" Genius carabiner does. I only buy Genuis carabiners now. It is a bargain for $2 extra.

        No MWL listed makes it a pig in a poke.
        Probably good to suspend a kellet on your anchor rode.
