Strength and safety come first when dealing with climbing gear, which is why Omega Pacific made the Oval Screw-Lock Carabiner. Using an exclusive cold forging process, Omega Pacific blessed this 'biner with some burly numbers, namely a major axis strength rating of 22kN and minor axis strength rating of 8kN, which are unusually high in the Oval world. So lock up this bad boy and rap, whip, or send in safety and with the full knowledge that you have worthy gear.
The Omega Pacific's ISO Cold Forged Standard Oval Locking Carabiner is a real Technological challenge. Because of the shape, the load is shAred equally between the spine and gate sides of the carabiner, which typically results in lower strength ratings. However, with Omega's exclusive ISO Cold Forging process, they Are able to compensate by shifting material and putting aluminum where it needs to be to reinforce the frame. CompAre for yourself and you'll see that Omega has one of the strongest oval carabiners on the market.
