Strong, dependable and made from high quality materials that won’t let you down. This is our time tested 1/2″ steel modified “D” shaped frame paired with a hook lock nose. This design allows for a larger gate opening which allows it to be connected to larger diameter anchor points. 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. This model contains a captive eye pin which serves to keep slings, harness connections, etc permanently connected to the carabiner (shipped with pin uninstalled). Finally, each one is then half-load tested (over 6,000 lbf.) to ensure it meets our high safety standards. Color: Gold. Certified to NFPA 1983-12 Ed. Made in the U.S.A.
