comment What are creative uses for retired carabiners?
Be aware that the plastic lid connection is really flimsy. I've had quite a few of them snap or roll off, so I generally attach some thin cord around the neck of the nalgene, and clip to that.

That seems like it would be difficult with a proper carabiner :).

I completely agree that the only way to really retire unsafe climbing gear is to destroy it.

comment An adjustable length knot for 2 lines and a carabiner for easy suspension
That carabiner looks like it would hold up exactly once, I'm sure the OP will figure that out and replace it with a proper-sized carabiner :)

comment Knot to turn cord into loop (load bearing)
I'm not a big fan of that alternative name because of the connotations it brings :). Agreed, dressing it well (pulling on each pair of strands) is key.

comment Climbing chalk through customs
Agreed; I have flown with chalk in both carry-on and checked luggage. Don't carry on a nut tool, however!
