Belay-Loop Myth

I see people belaying with their carabiner clipped around both tie-in points on their harnesses instead of clipped to the belay loop. Is the technique they are using safe?

Another good resource here. This is a common question climbers tend to ask. Especially when we see the older generation doing the clip both waistbelt and legloops method. I must admit i use to do that and i was taught that. But that was like eons ago…time to move on. Technology has improved so much that that think strip of nylon can take almost 2 tons of weight. Human stupidity and complacency however has not evolved much…
