The strength depends on the structure of the entire carabiner and how it is loaded. Describing weakness in terms of loading configuration might be more useful to a climber. For starters a carabiner is much weaker when the gate is open or it is in a cross loaded configuration.

So this may be a stupid question, and yes I have looked around the forums and google...

What are the strongest points on a carabiner? The weakest? Is there a diagram with kN ratings somewhere for each force applied?

Thanks.

which is not such a stupid question at all....
