Unanswered Question

Why is the captive eye version cheaper? Seems like it would cost more to build. Can it be used without the pin as a standard carabiner?

unbeatable steel biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Nothing testifies to the security and strength of a product like longevity. I see this carabiner all the time among the military, search & rescue, adventure ropes courses, ziplines, and even highlines. The silhouette of the D-shape is identical to the other asymmetric aluminum Ds, however this carabiner is nearly twice as strong and exponentially more durable.

The screw locks open on their own!

The screw locks open on their own!

I love the idea of using steel carabiners for a master point when top roping. They can put up with the abuse of being possibly the most-used hardware in my kit and I don't have to worry as much about them getting damaged if I less-than-carefully drop them over the edge when setting up, etc. And of course, they're stronger than any other item in my system. Total overkill. They should be the last master point carabiners I ever buy.

But here's the rub. I set up my master point with them opposite and opposed, screw the locks down tight, and get climbing. More than once, I've found the screw locks completely undone by the time I reach the top of my first ascent (I mark my biners with nail polish, so I can instantly see if they're unlocked). I assume it's caused by the movement as I climb. Really not cool. I don't trust these and returned them. The D-shape also often causes the two to not lie in the best orientation. Shame. I ordered some oval Petzl Oxans with Triact-lock gates elsewhere.

Responded on

In my industry, we use quicklinks all the time. A little known fact is that they are supposed to be installed oriented so that gravity would hold the screw gate in the closed position. For longer term installation like a toprope anchor it wouldn't hurt to do the same with your screwgate caribiner- vibration would do nothing to loosen it
