      Comments about Heavy Duty Retractor Carabiner:

      I originally liked this item, unfortunately I can't amend my original review.
      I used this daily for over a year, just 3-4 work keys and my employee badge, which I have to wave at door scanners several times a day.
      It has failed in multiple ways.
      1. The lock failed which I never used. it would just get set accidentally, then it was hard to unlock. Eventually the lock tab inside broke. I was able to disassemble it, remove the loose piece, and put it back together. It was then fully functional except for the lock, which I didn't need.
      2. One of the lock tabs that hold on the removable key ring broke off, fortunately one tab is sufficient to keep the keyring on the lanyard.
      3. The last straw was the wire loop that holds the keyring. One of the swaged ends on the loop came off, this made the carabiner completely non-functional.
      The reason I still give it two stars is it did last a year.

      Nice, but loop failed

        Comments about Heavy Duty Retractor Carabiner:

        I really liked the design and usability of the retractor, but the wire loop frayed (and stabbed me). I managed to tie the wire in a knot to fix it, but I was disappointed that the loop was not more durable. I had to replace it with a different retractor for my (too many) keys. The retractor spring was strong enough and the mechanism to hold the loop is a bit odd, but worked fine until the loop started to come undone at one of the end crimps. Wish it had lasted. Liked the design.

            Re-engineer!

            from East Tennessee

            • Keeps A Repeat Tool Handy

            Comments about Heavy Duty Retractor Carabiner:

            Some of the product self-ballyhoo on the package might well be replaced with a serious set of instructions.

            The line-brake, and both 'quick-disconnect' attachments are very difficult to manage, and while the product works well once it is set up, getting there is unnecessarily difficult.

            The product design and construction are good; the production engineering not so much.
