Strong, dependable and made from high quality materials that won’t let you down. We’ve taken our time tested 1/2″ steel traditional “D” shaped frame and paired it with a newly designed key lock nose. This design alleviates some of the snagging of equipment encountered on the more traditional “hook style” noses. The 3-stage Quik-Lok is certified to ANSI Z359.12 2009 and CSA Z259.12-11 standards which require 3 separate actions to open the gate. Additionally, it is made from high strength steel bar stock which is then heat treated to produce one of the highest breaking strengths in it’s class of carabiners. Each is then subjected to a zinc chromate plating designed to increase corrosion resistance. Finally, each one is then half-load tested (over 8,000 lbf.) to ensure it meets our high safety standards. Color: Black. Also certified to NFPA 1983-12 Ed. Made in the U.S.A.
