Rock-N-Rescue and Omega Pacific have teamed up to produce one of the newest, lightest weight, G-Rated aluminum carabiners on the market today. Made from aircraft grade aluminum and weighing in at only 4.6 ounces, this carabiner is the lightest ever to meet the requirements for “General Use” in accordance with current NFPA 1983 standards. The G-First has an auto lock gate and a “Keylock Nose” which marries the gate and the frame of the carabiner without the traditional “notch and pin” that can sometimes interfere with with slings, ropes and other equipment. UL Certified to current NFPA standards. Made in the U.S.A.
