Steel Oval Snaplink
A traditional, steel oval snaplink which is well suited for use as a braking karabiner.
Less aggressive braking than the Raumer Handy, which may suit less experienced users or those on thicker or stiffer ropes.
Also useful if you want a more versatile braking krab i.e. it can also hold together the Garma harness when in ascent, be used as part of a Garda hitch, and works better on steel cable traverses than more specialised gear.
Long axis - 24kn. Gate open - 6kn.Gate aperture 20mm (note, this is *not* a keylock). Weight 144g.
