    Steel Carabiner FAQs

    Are steel carabiners stronger?

    Compared to aluminum carabiners, steel carabiners are more durable and can offer higher kilonewton ratings than aluminum carabiners. For instance, our D-Shaped Steel Carabiner Screw Lock is a steel locking carabiner that supports up to 45 kN, almost double that of aluminum carabiners.

    While strong steel carabiners can be made to support more pound-force, they are also heavier than aluminum carabiners, which can be a drawback for some climbers. Many aluminum and steel carabiner kilonewton ratings are the same, and either choice can support most climbers.


    How much weight can a steel carabiner hold?

    Steel carabiners can hold different weights depending on their shape. For instance, our Triple Lock Gate Steel Oval Carabiner offers a major axis strength of 25kN, or 5,620 pounds of force. Meanwhile, the D-Shaped Steel Carabiner Screw Lock is a steel locking carabiner that supports up to 45 kN, or 10,116.4 pounds of force. The Quick Link Steel Oval Carabiner offers 40kN of breaking strength, equal to 8,992 pounds of force.
