Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


This hot forged carabiner is designed to prevent cross loading while belaying. The isolation feature integrated into the gate keeps the direction of pull from your belay device to the belay loop in line with the carabiner's spine.
