        Comments about Omega Five-0 Wire Gate Carabiner:

        I wrote in my previous review that this carabiner is advertised as fitting over a paddle shaft. NRS did not advertise it as such. One reviewer stated that it fit over his paddle shaft, another stated that it didn't. I agree with latter and that's 2 different brands with regular paddle shaft diameter in my case (Lendal Storm, Celtic, both carbon).

        Comments about Omega Five-0 Wire Gate Carabiner:

        Advertised as being large enough to fit around your paddle shaft to get a free hand for rescues, etc.. Does not fit either my Lendal or Celtic paddle, both with a standard shaft diameter. Very disappointing.

                The only Crab I have found that easily snaps over a paddle shaft and into the tight recesses behind many kayak safety/extraction bars

                Comments about Omega Five-0 Wire Gate Carabiner:

                Overall, I like the ease of use of this carabiner. It is easy to open quickly. However, NRS advertised this carabiner as handy for fitting around paddle shafts, but its mouth does not fit around my standard werner paddle shaft, a real disappointment. This shortcoming limits the utility I can get from this carabiner. I use this carabiner for securing paddling gear inside of my kayak or for quickly clipping together gear in a recovery/rescue situation on the river.
