Revolver Shackles

I would like some opinions on revolver shackles. I'm considering these on my newest project, I've heard that they can unlock on steep uphill and downhill grades. One thing I'm also considering is revolvers on a shackle reversal, any thoughts?

Go for them, they dont open on steep descents. I have a pair I am going to put on my jeep and I have seen them go through all the developement as I worked for a company close to TeraFlex.

I have seen them put through all kinds of stuff in Moab and never once seen them open when they werent wanted. They work equally well on shackle reversals, but you have to experiment with the best way when you do that. They are supposed to go on with the pivot facing the axle, but I have seen it work better the other way on some reversal systems. I say go for them.
