Disturbing Failure Modality In Some Fall Arrest Devices

While researching fall arrest devices I came across the video below from a seemingly credible source that explains how several popular devices can fail to arrest if the attaching carabiner gets oriented in ways that I can easily see happening when climbing masts.

Worth 15 minutes of your time, particularly if you use climbing backup devices.
