Ratings & Reviews
Very good all around Carabiner.
The petzl william is a really good carabiner. It has a good shape to it for most uses. Large enough to operate a munter hitch with and small and light enough to use as a personal carabiner for your turnouts. I prefer the standard screw lock because with gloved hands it is easier to use with one hand. If you are in a bind you do not have time to fiddle with an auto lock or twist lock biner. In my opinion this is the best general shape carabiner, not too big and not too small. If you solely use 1/2"" rope it will fit snug but this carabiner works really well for 11mm.
"Can this support the average persons weight?"
Sam, the William Screw-Lock has a 25Kn (5,625lbs of force) breaking strength. For point of reference, the human body can sustain about 9Kn force before major internal damage occurs. That said, the William is strong enough to support the average person.
