    Locking Carabiner FAQs

    What are locking carabiners for?

    Locking carabiners can be used for a variety of purposes in climbing where the strongest and most secure connection is required. Locking carabiners are a top choice for attaching yourself to an anchor, rigging, belaying, and alpine coils.


    Are auto-locking carabiners safe?

    Since auto-locking carabiners (also known as twist lock carabiners) are designed to lock themselves shut after being opened, they are a safe and recommended option for many climbing needs. Auto-locking carabiners differ from screw-lock carabiners, which require the climber to manually screw the sleeve onto the gate for a secure lock. Both are excellent options in terms of safety, and the right one for you comes down to preference.


    How much weight can a locking carabiner hold?

    The amount of weight a locking carabiner can hold depends on the locking carabiner you have. Each locking carabiner will have a maximum kilonewton (kN) rating on the carabiner to help you determine the maximum weight supported by the locking carabiner. One kilonewton is equal to 224.8 pound-force.
