Back in stock end November 2020

This carabiner has a twist lock gate. Very efficient, you can't let it open after the installation.
With his 24kN resistance and his oval shape, he is perfect for a slackline use, especially in the Primitiv Kits
The webbing passes trough it with ease. Connecting slings is ultra easy. A must have for kits over 50m in length. Above 50m or with a pulley system, we strongly recommend the use of shackles

Using advices

  • Useful to connect slings to the slackline and for Primitiv Kits
  • Use it only in the right direction - never sideways
  • Triloading : Avoid to use it when your sling is connected round a big tree. If you still do it, it will affect the resistance of the carabiner due to a triload force which can lead to the destruction of the carabiner.
    To avoid this, please use shackles instead.
