The Beal Be Safe Karabiner is an HMS belay karabiner adapted for belaying. As such, it can accommodate two ropes at once, without the risk of them overlapping 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 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.
Don't deal with a cross loaded belay karabiner again! Specifically designed for belaying, the Gridlock isolates the belay loop of a harness behind the uniquely shaped internal gate, thus keeping the karabiner in the correct orientation. The Gridlock is simple, easy to use and effective.
Black Diamond's largest belay and rappel locker, the Black Diamond RockLock carabiner features a keylock nose, is Munter Hitch compatible and can be operated with one hand.
The heavy duty version of the 25kN Boa looks very similar, but is hot forged from 14mm rather than 12mm bar to give it the 30kN major axis rating required for rescue loads. The massive curved basket copes with even the busiest rigging set up and still allows devices to settle comfortably. The impressive size and ergonomics ensure it can be operated by even the largest hands with the chunkiest of gloves.
The DMM Belay Master 2 is a belay karabiner that has safety at its heart. The nylon crossgate means that you can be sure that the screwgate is locked properly if the crossgate is closed. It stops the chance of the screw undoing and retains the krab in the correct orientation so not weakening of the system can occur.
Used in conjunction with many DMM karabiners (that can be bought in store), this device locks in place the karabiner, to prevent cross loading. It holds the karabiner and belay device in the correct alignment with the harness. This clip can only be locked if the screwgate has been properly closed, being another safety advantage. This small item will aid to make sure you never do your belay wrong!
The PerfectO is a compact true oval carabiner that maintains ease of use, even one-handed. Its shape provides effective centring of loads and the fully rounded rope bearing areas increase carabiner and rope longevity. A keylock nose allows snag-free operation.
The DMM Shadow is a D shaped karabiner featuring an anti-snag keylock nose, is easy to handle, and light and strong thanks to its I-Beam technology. Great for racking, rigging and rope-work.
DMM have taken their best loved Shadow biners and coloured them in! This is to reduce confusion on the rock, or at belays and simplify systems, plus it adds some razzle dazzle to your rack! Each biner looks very different even in poor lighting making it easier to distinguish what is what on the rock. Suited for climbers of all abilities, who want easy identification of kit.
