Tephra Trapwire Screw-Lok Locking Carabiner - 15336_6484_1
By combining innovation and functionality into the Omega Pacific exclusive TrapWire technology, the Tephra Trapwire Screw-Lok Locking Carabiner is safer, stronger, and noticeably lighter than other belay carabiners. The TrapWire keeper at the bottom of the carabiner helps maintain proper orientation while belaying and it serves as the main spring of the carabiner. The traditional lever/pusher and internal spring inside the gate have been eliminated which translates into a lighter product with fewer parts, improved reliability, and a stronger hinge. Tephra is the Greek word for erupted elements from a volcano, and thanks to the unique hot-forged frame, the Tephra TrapWire is one of the strongest belay carabiners: 27kN rated strength (major axis) and a burly 10kN open-gate strength. The narrow, low-profile nose and keylock design make smooth, snag-free connections to belay loops, rappel devices, webbing and gear loops. Unlike most belay carabiners with an orientation-assist bar across the frame, the Tephra TrapWire permits clean and simple racking of a Grigri or other belay device while not in use.
