SMC Dualguard™ Auto-locking Lite Steel


A Lite Alloy steel carabiner featuring double or triple action gates. Easily opened with one hand, but once released, the gate closes to a fully locked position. The carabiner gate and sleeve are stainless steel for problem-free operation. An offset ‘’D’’ shape provides a smooth transfer of the Munter hitch when used as a belay and has ample volume to clip in large diameter ropes and over the rails of most litters.
