The SMC X-Large Locking Steel Carabiner is manufactured using high quality Alloy Steel for optimal ratio of strength to weight. The off set D shape results in a larger gate opening that easily fits over litter rails. The sleeve locks on the gate rather than the body of the carabiner, eliminating problems of the knob binding on the frame once the carabiner has been loaded.
All the components found in this carabiner are meticulously hand-finished after machining, resulting in the smooth, free gate action that is the hallmark of all SMC carabiners. Additionally, each carabiner is 100% hand inspected for gate action and other functional characteristics before leaving the SMC factory. Look if you like but the chances are you’ll not find a better stainless steel carabiner anywhere.
The X-Large Locking Steel carabiners are third party certified by Underwriters Laboratories to meet NFPA 1983 “G” General Use.
