WHAT IS A NON-LOCKING CARABINER?
Simply put, a non-locking carabiner is a lightweight and versatile carabiner designed with an open gate rather than a screw gate or auto-locking gate. Because non-locking carabiners do not offer a locking mechanism, they are best used for quickly attaching extra equipment to harnesses and never for situations where an open gate could cause bodily injury.
As a UIAA and CE Certified brand, ARMBURY non-locking carabiners are certified safe to use and come in various styles to best fit your needs. Shop wire, straight, and bent non-locking carabiners to find the suitable options for your needs.
