A steel oval carabiner with stable loading characteristics, and better strength and durability than its aluminium equivalent.
Oval shape allows central positioning of devices
Oval carabiners are popular in rope access and tree care situations where multiple connectors, slings, ropes or even pulleys can be connected. They are equally at home in fall arrest situations or as part of a pre-rigged rescue system. The round basket shape allows any of the connection points to self-centre when weighted, this helps avoid the unnerving click that often happens with a more D-shaped carabiner. The symmetrical basket mean rotation within systems is not required as they sit comfortably either way round.
Auto-locking gate requiring two separate actions to open. Used when auto-locking gates are a necessity, but rigging systems are relatively static and anchor points are easy to monitor.
