What is a mountaineering carabiner?

A mountaineering carabiner is a metal loop with a spring-loaded gate used to quickly and reversibly connect components when 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. Mountaineering carabiners 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.

Amazon may require these documents at any time so we recommend you have them easily accessible.
