Beal Twin Smith Captive Carabiner

Notify me when this product is available:

Large capacity, asymmetrical steel locking karabiner for both in- and outdoor lower-offs subjected to intensive use.

Features the Twin-Gate concept with second wire gate. Twin Gate is a revolutionary concept for locking a karabiner, patented by Grivel/ Simond. Clipping the rope is easier than with a classic HMS screwgate karabiner, making it ideal for use at a lower-off at the top of a route.
The 11mm round profile reduces abrasion and sheath slippage when top roping. The Be Smith Twin Gates captive bar allows it to be permanently fixed to the lower-off.

  • Lower-off.
  • Particularly suited to clipping into anchors and fixed line or for arborist work restraint.
  • Its removable captive bar holds the Twin Smith Captive in place on equipment it is clipped into.
