With no notch in the nose, a thinner, weakened point in the frame is eliminated, and the smooth interior allows for easy de-clipping of directionals while top-roping. Furthermore, the design maximizes the effective “closed” range, as even with some gate flutter the gate will engage with the nose. The forged frame puts the meat of metal where it does the most good, along the major axis and the rope-bearing surface.
- Attention: For safety, use bent gate carabiners like this one for rope clipping only.
- Strength of 23kN with closed gate, 9.5kN with open gate, 10kN if cross-loaded.
- Gate opening of 2cm.
- Individually tested.
- Three Sigma tested.
- CE certified.
