Carabiners

Carabiners, Karabiners, Krabs, Crabs, Biners, whatever you call them or however you spell them, we sell a wide range of them! Carabiners come in two main types: Locking (e.g. screwgate), and non-locking (e.g. wiregates).

Locking Carabiners such as screwgates, are designed to be used in situations when it is of particular importance that the gate remains closed (e.g. at belays or when belaying). Larger (usually pear-shaped) HMS style carabiners have more room and are commonly used with belay devices or when top-roping.

Non-locking (AKA snapgate) come in two main types: Wiregate and Solidgate biners. Wiregate biners tend to be lighter, are stronger when loaded across the gate and don't 'bounce' open when knocked against the rock. Solidgate biners have a sturdier feel and some people find them easier to clip. A further sub-division is that solid-gate biners can have either a Straight or a Bent-gate. Bent-gate biners were introduced to make clipping the rope into the biner easier; an aspect that is especially useful when you're half way up a route and pumped silly!
