It is important to note that the carabiner's gate uses 7075 alloy which is the same as the biner body and is super strong. This means unlike many other brands the gate when closed should make the same strength if pushed inwards as pulled outwards. This is not a requirement for the CE test but it is something that Wild Country has insisted on as there have been a number of notable failures of gates when pushed in, especially in abseiling situations using Figure 8s. Finally, like all the Wild Country biners, the thimble on the gate always stops short of the nose making sure it cannot be over-tightened.
