Has anybody ever tried to use a cross-load protecting Black Diamond Gridlock carabiner with a Smart Alpine belay device?
I do think the Smart Alpine does not go very well with the CRAG Smart HMS carabiner from Mammut. The Smart Alpine belay device sometimes gets caught in a corner since it is pretty broad and rather chunky. In a hectic situation this may cause danger to the climber.
I never had this issue with a regular Smart or Smart 2.0 device, so this question specifically for the Smart Alpine variants.
Maybe someone has a perfect (cross load protecting) carbine match for the Smart Alpine suggestion?
Thank you very much in advance.
