Product Description

The DMM Sentinel is a multi-functional, super light mini HMS that has recently been updated to include a keylock nose. The beauty of this little locker is that it works really well as a small HMS and yet, because of it's slightly offset shape, also works as a great rigging/multi-purpose screwgate. Sentinel works equally well with any belay device, and fits snugly on most belay loops, reducing the chances of cross loading. It's deep basket and good gate opening make it a fantastic and versatile rigging biner too. The Sentinel utilises Hot Forged I-Beam technology to create a light, but incredibly strong carabiner. The barrel on the gate is machined from premium 7075 alloy to give it massive push-in strength. There is no current standard for this test, but at DMM they don't build carabiners to meet standards; they build their kit as well as they can, eliminate weaknesses and help push the standards forward. It is also anodised for protection against the elements especially coastal and rigorous mountain environments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Midi-sized full spec screwgate 22 Oct 2010
Not a company that can be accused of mass producing 'me-too' climbing gear, DMM seems to constantly strive to push the envelope forward with items of climbing gear that offer genuine utility rather than faddish design.

Whilst products like the mamba caused a genuine stir, items like the humble screwgate offer less excitement factor.

However, DMM seem to have struck gold with the Sentinel screwgate. It is a proper belay screwgate with an interesting shape which tends to keep it in the upright position, the narrow lower end of the krab sits perfectly in a harness belay loop whilst the flared out top end is perfect partnered with the DMM Bug or even a humble munter hitch if you are craving old school climbing adventure.

The krab is of an I-beam construction and has that lush, almost tactile anodising DMM seem to have perfected. I love the fact that this krab isn't a huge lump of metal but rather pretty diminutive in size whilst still offering full belay krab spec.

The screwgate is flawlessly made with no sharp edges and nice knurling to the lock, it stick well in the locked and unlocked position.

All in all a pretty perfect iteration of the belay krab and a sublime partner to the Bug (see my review of that).

Highly recommended.
