Hello all, thank you in advance for your wisdom. For those of you whom have lowered a follower (in guide mode) using a DMM Pivot, what is your preferred carabiner that fits the DMM Pivot's lowering hole?? According to some research done here (backcountry.com/dmm-chicane… ) the "DMM Sentinel locker, Petzl Spirit locker, and C.A.M.P. Photon locker fit into the hole..." and I have found that a CAMP nano as well as the dinky Metolius FS Mini (v01) does, but does anyone have a biner (or a system) they prefer? It seems like most biners don't fit too well. Thank you.

Any small biner will do.  Usually will just use one of my smaller racking biners, like the Camp Nanos.
