AustriAlpin is a manufacturer of climbing gear. Here we offer a few of their Steel Karabiner collection. We are a relatively new dealer for AustriAlpin so we may not have all the
Karabiners you need in stock but be patient as we muttle through and we hope to build up to be their #1 Dealer. As you can see above the strength is listed next to each Karabiner. Pay particular
attention to the top row for those are "Keylock" Karabiners which means they don't have the hook-type gate that sometimes can snag your harness.
Karabiner? Why not Carabiner? We noticed while preparing this article that all of AustriAlpin's literature spells Carabiner with a "K".
*A carabiner (/kærəˈbiːnər/) or karabiner is a metal loop with a sprung gate used to quickly and reversibly connect components in safety-critical systems. The word is a shortened
form of "Karabinerhaken", German for "spring hook for a carbine".
