The Beal Orient Express is a unidirectional locking carabiner designed for use with belay devices. Thanks to the internal snap gate that clips onto a harness belay loop, the carabiner cannot turn over. This ensures the carabiner stays in the correct direction thus reducing the risk of the belay system being weakened through cross loading.
Specifications:Size: 53 cm - 63 cm
The Beal Air-Hook is an auto-locking aluminium connector with a large opening and automatic locking. With its wide opening and automatic locking, the Air Hook connector is ideal for connecting to cables and bars. For greater comfort, its locking and unlocking trigger is anatomically designed. And to ensure their traceability, each connector has a unique identification number.
The Beal Be Lock is a large HMS carabiner designed for easy use with double (halves and twins) rope systems. The large surface area provides easy control in all weather. The Be Lock is particularly suitable for HMS belays and double rope manoeuvres, such as capstan or half-capstan.
The Beal Be Safe is a HMS screwlock karabiner that's perfect for use with belay devices as it can accommodate two ropes at once, without the risk of them becoming overlapped in the event of a fall. The reception cradle ensures that the two ropes slide together and does not generate friction on the sides of the carabiner when the rope is braked. This is true whether rappelling or stopping a fall.
The DMM Ceros has been designed to help minimise the risk of cross-loading with its internal wire-gate that will keep the karabiner captive on the belay loop. The wire gate opens onto the belay loop in a single movement, plus the intuitive design ensures it is easy to use and rack - even with one hand. The horn on the spine of the karabiner helps prevent assisted braking devices from jumping onto the spine.
The DMM Phantom HMS is an extremely compact and lightweight, yet strong karabiner with an optimised rope bearing surface that's ideally suited for belaying and rigging. The extra-short gate and slim tapering nose can easily take clove hitches and clipping slings.
The Mammut Smart HMS 2.0 Screwgate Carabiner offers the same double safety and easy handling as the older version. The screw locking can be operated only when the safety gate is open. Accidental opening is excluded, as well as unintentional twisting of the carabiner in the belay loop of the climbing harness. This prevents dangerous lateral loading. Mammut recommends use of the Smart HMS 2.0 carabiner for the Smart 2.0 belay device.
The OCUN Condor HMS Twist is a large karabiner that responds to the new trends of safety. Equipped with an independent internal wire gate that prevents it from rotating and guards against unwanted release from a belay loop, this karabiner ensures safe belaying and rappelling. The internal gate locks in the right direction and therefore prevents upward release. This means that the belayer can focus their full attention on the climber. The Condor brings a new level of safety into belaying.
The Petzl Attache is a lightweight and compact, pear-shaped karabiner with as screw gate opening. It has multiple uses for belaying, such as connecting a belay system to a harness and belaying with a Munter hitch. It has a H-cross section to reduce weight, as well as the keylock system to avoid the karabiner snagging during manoeuvres.
