It's never a smart idea to rappel off a climb without a prusik, but sometimes you use your prusik to back up tattered anchors, or you simply forgot it; lucky for you, Petzl's Freino Carabiner adds much-needed friction to rappels with the integrated Friction Spur. Simply setup your standard rappel, and then wrap the rope's slack end through the secondary carabiner to improve friction on your rappel. The carabiner itself features a super secure twist-lock automatic locking gate, and the keylock nose eliminates snagging on your rope when you made it to the bottom of the route, safe and sound.
