.... add some nuts for texture, and drizzle some Q20 before tossing.

Hi All,
The pic of the above biner (with me biting into it). The biner failed when someone from Paarl took a fall onto it. I can't remember the details but luckily no one was hurt.

Many thanks to Gordon Forbes for sending in a report on Effects of wear on static and dynamic failure loads
of aluminium-based alloy climbing karabiners
