Show Description

This wee and light carabiner meets the minimum strength requirements of the UIAA for carabiners. Its smallness makes it a specialist’s carabiner, for racking, extending slings, and for rescue kits. The small gate opening, limited rope-bearing surface, and overall durability limit its usefulness as part of a quickdraw, but make it extremely light draw.

  • I-beam construction puts material along the load-bearing axis, improving the strength-to-weight ratio.
  • Flared nose profile helps reduce accidental gate openings.
