    S-biners? Not any more. When I first discovered them I bought about a dozen in various sizes. Then I discovered that they routinely release whatever they are holding. So now I have a junk box full of them. Search other threads here for details.

    I have been using s binders since they came out have not had any thing fall out yet. Knock on wood. But so far so good for me anyway.

    I checked; there's only about five left. I guess I have used a few for non-critical applications and a few have probably slunk off in shame. So, shipping is not really worth fooling with, but thanks for the offers.

    BTW I modified a few by filing notches so that the wire sits flush when it closes against the (inside) end of the "S." My theory is that this might reduce the number of escapees, but I haven't really tested enough to see if this is the case or not. Really, the wire needs to be larger diameter/stiffer for the s-biners to be safe. They are just too easy to open. IMHO anyway.
