Freino Carabiner

The Petzl Freino Carabiner is a unique locker with a friction spur that adds or adjusts braking power during single-rope descents, and it can also assist belayers with lowering climbing partners. You can use the locking carabiner with or without the friction spur, and it functions as a normal twist-locking carabiner. Once you've rigged your single-rope rappel, or your climber is ready to lower, you can easily loop the rope around the friction spur for better braking control.


  • Locking carabiner designed for single-rope descents
  • Friction spur adds control while rappeling or lowering on belay
  • Twist gate automatically locks shut for extra security
  • Keylock nose prevents snagging while unclipping
  • For use on single ropes with Petzl's Stop, GriGri, Huit, Huit Antibrulure, and Simple
  • Item #PTZ0148
