    The best connector for towers, handrails, and other large structures.

    The MGO open is one of the best products that petzl has ever made. It is such a simple idea, but compared to a fixed eye ladder hook it is so much more useful. It is lighter than a large steel carabiner, stronger than a large aluminum carabiner, and the gate opens wider so it fits places other connectors can't, like the top chord of StageCo roof truss. It can handle some side load which is reassuring. It opens easily one handed. It's just about perfect.

    Right now I have one for positioning that switches between a petzl adjust lanyard and the grillon, and a pair on my fall arrest lanyards. It is a little more expensive than using a standard twin leg with sewn on hooks but if I ever accidentally cut a leg, which has happened I can reuse the hooks and save a little money.

    The only thing to consider is that this hook does not meet the new ansi requirements for gate strength. The sewn in hooks from petzl have gates rated to 16kn, but to do that they are larger, heavier, and squeeze at the top to release. I found them to be very awkward and way too heavy. But if your employer needs to meet that standard this hook won't work. For everyone else, it's as close to perfect as it gets.
