The DMM 10mm Oval karabiner features a 10mm bar construction. It is cold forged and also heat treated for enhanced levels of strength and performance and is available with a choice of 3 gate opening systems. You can opt for either a traditional screwgate, a two way kwiklock or a 3 way locksafe system. All of these 3 gate systems allow a minimum of 17mm for loading through the gate opening. An oval carabiner gives much greater efficiency when using a pulley, it ensures that the pulley can sit squarely to give smoother running system.
Oval for symmetry; shape allows central positioning of devices: Oval connectors are popular in rope access and tree care situations where multiple connectors, slings, ropes or even pulleys can be connected. They are equally at home in fall arrest situations or as part of a pre-rigged rescue system. The round basket shape allows any of the connection points to self-centre when weighted – this helps avoid the unnerving click that often happens with a more D-shaped connector. The symmetrical basket mean rotation within systems is not required as they sit comfortably either way round.

The Maillon Rapide Long Opening is a long oval shaped Maillon Rapide, the gate being longer than the standard. Available in galvanised or stainless steel, and in a number of different sizes (see drop down menu). These are ideal for rigging ropes in any situation where they will not be in view during use as they are much less likely than a karabiner to open accidentally. The downside is that they are slightly slower to use than a screw gate karabiner.
The Maillon Rapide Standard was developed on the principle of a chain link fitted with manual nut opening. This shape reflects the spirit of Maillon Rapide quick links connectors.
The Oxan is Petzl's high quality steel oval karabiner with a keylock gate closure, this is the steel karabiner of choice for demanding conditions. Petzl’s Keylock means less snagging, while the red indicator on the screw lock provides a visual warning if the gate is not locked.
The Beal O'Smith is a steel symmetrical oval karabiner that's ideal for using and working with pulleys. The oval shape is perfect for using with pulleys as it ensures that the pulley sits perfectly square and is equalised for balance. Each carabiner has an individual number that guarantees its traceability.
Maillon Rapides have a working load limit that is a fifth of the breaking load of the maillon (as stated by the manufacturer) and will become damaged and distorted if they are used above this load limit. Some are certified as PPE (to protect falls from height) and some are not. If you are unsure of which is which, either ask us, or have a look at your maillon which will be marked with "PPE" if it is and "CE" if it is not. CE maillons conform to Maillon Rapide's standards but are not certified as PPE.
The Foin 10mm Oval is a true oval karabiner in 10mm steel, rated to 22kn. It is ideal for use with pulleys in all except the highest loading situations. This oval connector allows it to be used with the full range of pulleys, as well as all the other standard uses for a karabiner.
The Maillon Rapide Long Opening Twist is an 8mm galvanised quick link karabiner with a 90° twist. This allows for smoother orientation of any part.
The ISC Oval Karabiner has a hooked nose as standard.
