Quick Overview

When an oval without a lock just won't do
Move your mouse over image or click to enlarge
Shaped to resemble the tactical curves of an oval (a shape like an elongated circle or the number zero -- 0), this carabiner has a "gated" side that hinges inward to allow the main body of the carabiner to be hooked onto bolt-holds, ropes, etc. via the gate opening. The Screw-lok housing around the gate arm can be spun and secured into place so that the gate arm cannot be hinged away from the main body that makes up the carabiner. This action -- often called "locking" -- lends strength to the carabiner by making it a single closed unit which can sustain the great forces that would be exerted upon it when connected to a climber and his/her gear. This "locking" prevents "gate flutter," a phenomenon which occurs with "non-locking" carabiners when they impact an unyielding surface and the inertial forces involved pull on the gate arm and cause the "non-locked" gate to momentarily open. This carabiner comes in the color black, which naturally absorbs light.

Whether staring up at El Cap or starting out on the gym’s rock wall, it's about having the best tools for the challenge. We can help you put together the most secure package for safety and protection with helmets, harnesses, ropes, biners, and more.

Sport climbers will find our climbing gear flush with a selection of biners and quickdraws from makers like Camp, DMM, and Wild Country suited for any top-roping or bolt route. Trad climbers will be happy with the wide variety of cams and nuts we keep on hand for those looking to tackle technical pitches unmarred by bolt holds. Even mountaineering climbers can rest assured we have the harnesses and helmets they'll need for team expeditions that require being roped together when traversing snowfields or clipping onto guide lines on the Via Ferrata.

These products have been engineered from the best materials by the most respected manufacturers in the outdoor industry. It's about safety at all times. Trust a hold with active pro cams that expand into cracks from Black Diamond's Camalot C4 family or leave worry out of the game with a passive pro nut sized just right to slide into your crag from makers like Metolius and Trango. Backcountry Gear ensures everything has been tested, from every sheath of rope to the bags that hold them, as well as markers and hooks. All you have to do is find the route.
