Karabiners and maillons: SRT

This category covers items that might be used in an SRT kit for cowstails, braking krabs, central harness attachment. The items in the category 'Maillons and karabiners for rigging' might also have what you want.

Half Circle maillon 10mm, steel 
£6.00

Half Circle maillon 10mm, steel

Half circle maillon, 10mm, steel. Classic screw closure link for modern caving SRT harnesses. Can be used with all sit harnesses sold by Starless River; only the Petzl Omni or the Cordes Courant Moka may be used in its place with safety. Supplied as PPE.
Half Circle maillon 10mm, Stainless 
£17.50

Half Circle maillon 10mm, Stainless

Half circle maillon, 10mm, *stainless* steel. Classic screw closure link for modern caving SRT harnesses. Can be used with all sit harnesses sold by Starless River; only the Petzl Omni or the Cordes Courant Moka may be used in its place with safety. Supplied by Peguet. Weight 159g.
Cordes Courant Moka harness karabiner 
£21.90

Cordes Courant Moka harness karabiner

Cordes Courant Moka harness karabiner. Essentially a karabiner to replace the central maillon in an SRT setup. The Moka is an alloy, tri-act karabiner, strong, light, and convenient to use. As with the Omni, the advantages of this over a traditional steel maillon are weight, convenience (easier and quicker to unclip from the harness intentionally) and the reassurance that if any openings unscrew / undo, the karabiner is still as strong as long as the gate remains closed... not so with a maillon. They are dearer, of course! But the Moka is a good price... and you'd not want a single point of attachment that was *too* cheap, would you? I've used one of these since the start of 2010 and find it as easy to use as my normal Omni screwgate. Cordes Courant are making a (limited) range of good hardwear these days, as well as their ropes. Length is 87mm, weight is 54g. Long axis strength is 25kn, gate opening is 10kn
Petzl Omni Screwgate 
£21.90

Petzl Omni Screwgate

The Omni is an alloy, very secure karabiner that essentially replaces the central D shaped maillon in an SRT kit. Solid (10mm bar) design with keylock and a screwgate closure (complete with red 'warning ring' which shows if the screwgate is undone). Quicker to do up and undo than a traditional maillon, strong, light, and convenient, the Omni will maintain the integrity of the loop which is the basis for most caving harnesses. It is very convenient for those wishing to dekit quickly, whether due to very cold weather for changing, or incipient incontinence... Major axis strength 20kn, minor axis strength 15kn. The strength with open gate is still 7kn, and the gate open aperture is 22mm (so it is easy to fit on harnesses with fabric loops). Weight 86g
Petzl Omni Triact 
£26.50

Petzl Omni Triact

The Omni is an alloy, very secure karabiner that essentially replaces the central D shaped maillon in an SRT kit. Solid (10mm bar) design with keylock and the very secure Triact closure. Quicker to do up and undo than a traditional maillon, light, and perhaps marginally safer in that should the gate undo itself in the course of a very long pitch, or lots of prussiking, the Omni will maintain the integrity of the loop. It is very convenient for those wishing to dekit quickly, whether due to very cold weather for changing, or incipient incontinence... Major axis strength 20kn, minor axis strength 15kn. The strength with open gate is still 7kn, and the gate open aperture is 22mm (so it is easy to fit on harnesses with fabric loops). Weight 92g
4mm Delta Maillon 
£1.80

4mm Delta Maillon

Small steel maillon rapide, commonly used to connect a chest harness to the top hole of a chest ascender. As chest jammers have been made smaller, passing wide or multiple tapes through the top hole has become more difficult due to lack of space; this basic piece of kit helps fix this problem. Particularly applicable to those using simple tape harnesses, the Blitz, and to some extent the Torse.
Troll Sprint wiregate 
£6.50

Troll Sprint wiregate

Troll Sprint 9 wiregate. For the price, a seriously light, strong and compact karabiner. Suitable for deviations, clipping tackle bags to things / people, and general accessory use where a screwgate is unnecessary. You can also use it for climbing, which is what is was designed for! The lock is the old fashioned 'fishing hook' - marginally less easy to unclip than a keylock; but very light, and good at shedding mud in particularly foul places. Size on long axis 95mm, weight 49g, gate opening 22mm. Long axis strength is 27kn, gate loaded 8kn, gate open 8kn.
Edelrid Pure snaplink 
£6.60

Edelrid Pure snaplink

Edelrid Pure snaplink. Keylock closure, and light weight, makes this karabiner particularly suited for use in cowstails. The cowstail krabs are one of the most important parts of the whole SRT system; so a careful choice in this matter is entirely appropriate...cheap snaplinks in this capacity are a poor investment. At a rebelay, you do not want to be struggling to unclip from the hanger, or rope loop, after the transfer... The gate opening is 18mm, and the crucial measurements are: Long opening strength 27KN, cross loading 7KN, gate open strength 8KN. Weight is 50g.
Petzl Djinn karabiner 
£6.90

Petzl Djinn karabiner

Petzl Djinn karabiner. Alloy, straight gate, snaplink. Keylock gate. As a cowstail karabiner, nothing much better! The Djinn is particularly suited for quick clipping and unclipping, either as part of a quickdraw, or on a cowstail. Reasonable wide gate opening to accept ropes, karabiners, and hangers, in a small and lightweight package (but just a little larger than the Spirit, perhaps easier to handle in a cave environment). Note that, compared to this straight gate Djinn, bent gate karabiners can be significantly less safe in the way that they can unclip themselves, especially when clipped directly into a bolt.
Petzl Ange Wiregate 
£9.30

Petzl Ange Wiregate

A specialised bit of kit for krab connoisseurs who value high performance in their personal SRT kit... A light, strong wiregate with a very wide gate opening and smooth nose. The H section retains strength and maximises internal surface area for durability, while cutting weight to 34g. With a very smooth action and wire gate which facilitates clipping, this makes for the top end of what is available for cowstails, unless you favour screwgates. Long axis strength 22kn, gate open strength 10kn, gate aperture 26mm. Coloured blue. Made in France, three year warranty.
