None Locking Carabiners

Non locking carabiners come in three different categories:

The Gate openings are the same here as they were with the quickdraws. Main categories to look out for are straight, bend or wiregate carabiners. 

gate opening pro con
straight

durable and easy to use

available with keylock system

heavier than wiregate
bent

clipping rope is easier

durable

available with keylock system

heavier than wiregate
wire 

lightweight

reduce gate lash

less likely to freeze shut

less durable than straight&bent gate

The main thing to keep in mind here is that non locking carabiners should NEVER be used as belay, rappel or anchor devices. They are essentially carry tools and should not be used for anything else (except quickdraws).
