Yes, the munter flips, and that is a good thing. The purpose of flipping the munter in the carabiener is to change direction with it. Lowering with it it proceeds in one direction, when you go to raise (either by adding a MA or in low angle having a litter carry team walk back towards you) you pull on the running end and the munter flips in the carabiener and changes direction.
Back to the 540... funny we had the discussion, on our Task Force team we just talked about it in application. Evidently we will be using it more often on the US&R team.~Drew
