The Rock Exotica rockD Stainless carabiner is the right choice for a strong compact carabiner that is tough enough for the harshest of environments. The narrow, asymmetric “D” shape concentrates the load along the spine, which maximizes the strength of the carabiner along the major axis.
Not only is the frame of the rockD Stainless carabiner made from stainless steel, but also the components within the carabiner are made from stainless steel. Each piece of the carabiner will resist corrosion far beyond the equivalent materials found in other non-stainless carabiners. The carabiner is available with 2 different types of gate openings:
Auto-Lock: A three stage automatic locking carabiner. This gate required three motions to open. This is our prefered type of carabiner since it is easy to open and prevents gates being accidently left unlocked.
Screw-Lock: A screw lock carabiner is the classic locking gate. It has a screw locking mechanism that is turned by hand to lock or unlock the carabiner. This is very useful in situations where the carabiner must be opened and closed repeatedly such as during rigging. It is also useful in tactical situations since manipulating the gate is silent.
