Mountaineering carabiners covered by this policy
A mountaineering carabiner is a metal loop with a spring-loaded gate that is used to quickly and reversibly connect components during rock and mountain climbing, as part of a safety-critical system. Mountaineering carabiners are used to attach rope to pieces of equipment, or join two or more pieces of equipment together. They are generally made of aluminum or steel. Carabiners come in different shapes (d-shaped, asymmetrical d-shaped, and oval carabiners) and can be locking or non-locking.
