Quick and secure: snapgate carabiners

Snapgate Carabiners

As their name suggests, snapgate carabiners don’t have a safety lock, but rather a snap gate with a spring. When you need to clip something in quickly, all you need to do is push against the gate to open it. Snapgate carabiners are great to use in situations that don’t require securing. You should definitely have one, or ideally a good range, of snapgate carabiners as part of your climbing gear!

What type of snapgate carabiners are there and what should they be able to do?

Snapgate carabiners are available in different sizes, so the choice will depend on the intended use and your personal preference. However, some features are super important: the carabiner should be able to clip in quickly and securely, it should fit nicely in your hand and you should be able to operate it with just one hand. Snapgate carabiners should also be durable and have a high tensile strength. High-quality snapgate carabiners are an essential part of your climbing equipment!
