    It depends on the intended use. The main negative of the cheaper ones that I see is that they are only a dual action carabiner. So it seems that they are no safer than screw-lock carabiners, which I have read are not recommended in the tree industry. I typically see triple action (or greater, like the quadruple action you linked) being the recommended choice.

    That said, for something other than my main life support, I'd likely opt for the inexpensive ones. I have some wiregate carabiners by the same company for a camping hammock, and those seem to be of decent quality.

    Thanks for the link! I have them saved in my wishlist, in case I find a use.

    Life support I wouldn't cheap out on. Dmm makes nice stuff, as does ISC, rock Exotica, and many others that are under $20 for an autolock aluminum carabiner.

    DMM O are great. You don't need Ultra. CT makes great biners. A little under $20 each
