The carabiner is a must-have mountaineering tool.
A carabiner is an essential piece of equipment you use every time you climb a rock. A carabiner is a strong metal clip made of lightweight aluminum or high-strength steel that is generally used to attach all the different parts of a climbing safety system.
Carabiner has a spring-loaded door that opens under finger pressure, making it easy to clip it to climbing gear, such as a rope. A spring inside the carabiner keeps the door closed. The door is pushed open with a finger to clip a string or device to it, then released. The spring allows the mouth to close quickly. Carabiners have the most excellent load-carrying capacity when the trailhead is closed, and climbers generally use locking carabiners to ensure that the attachment doesn’t come off the carabiner.
