No I wouldn't use them for a belay/rap biner. In my small mind the gate could still be forced open with a rope running along the catch mechanism. I still like the traditional security of an old school screwgate. I'm not convinced by all these magnetic/sleeve/rotating lockign mechanisms.

What makes these biners awesome is you can operate them easily one handed in a desperate clipping situation (ie on lead). I can unclip them from my harness, clip them to the protection, and clip my rope in easily. You can't do that with any previous version of a locker that I have seen.
