Designed as a primary connection point from any fall arrest device, karabiners (or carabiners) are a safety-critical tool used for rope intensive activities, like climbing, window cleaning or construction work.
Nowadays, the common karabiner can be used as a keychain, to hold multiple bags at once, and as a connector. However, karabiners remain a vital tool for any activity requiring fall protection. The type of karabiner you choose will determine the degree of security and fall protection you have. Karabiners help minimise risk and ensure to safety of the wearer – meaning it is important to understand what karabiner will offer the most security.
