ISC Gator Screwgate 25 kN Aluminium Carbiner – ISKH453SG1
Weighing just 46 grams the KH453 Gator is still rated with an impressive breaking strength of 25 Kn. The acute angle of the basket helps any captivated rope or sling gravitate towards the strong spine of the carabiner whilst the smaller crotch area helps prevent carabiner rotation and subsequent side loading.
The drop forged body is manufactured from high quality aluminium. An anodised coating is added to the smooth rumbled body before each carabiner is finished with an individual identification number all ISC carabiners are proof checked before dispatch. The ISC innovative blind nose design helps minimise the risk of any snagging or plucking damage to your climbing line.
The patented ISC triple lock gates utilise stainless steel springs to ensure a long life under extreme conditions and are almost impossible to open accidentally, yet once mastered they can easily installed with just one hand. Square corners surrounding the locking pin area deploy built-up debris.
As part of your climbing system any carabiners should be visually and manually inspected before use and after any significant incident e.g. a fall, to ensure they work as intended. Any maintenance including cleaning should follow the manufacturer’s guidelines. If you are in any way concerned about the condition or action of the carabiner you should retire it from use immediately.
