DMM Carabiners Shadow Carabiner -Quicklock A303. Think of it as a bigger version of the Phantom. The extra gate opening and larger size make it easier to use if you are wearing gloves. And despite these advantages it still hangs lightly on your rack.
DMM's I-beam construction gives the Shadow Locking Carabiner a burly 24kN of strength. The Shadow comes with a standard screwgate, a speedy auto-locking quicklock gate, or a super secure locksafe gate. All Shadow carabiners have keylock noses to prevent snagging.
Description of DMM Shadow Straight Gate CarabinerThe best solid gate biner in the world Probably. DMM has manufactured this series of biners from a new alloy which when combined with our I-beam hot-forging technology gives even greater strength - the Shadow features a massive 10kn gate open strength. The Shadow also incorporates a new keylock nose to avoid the biner snagging on items. This is particulally useful when stripping steep routes or when the biner is used for racking gear. Ergonomically this biner just feels right and clipping is really easy. The inside of the biner has a really deep basket so that the rope is guided towards the spine for added safety. The gate incorporates a CNCed finger recess to make clips fast and secure. The Shadow is completely anodised to help combat corrosion and prolong life in hot, damp or salty enviroments.The Shadow is the new benchmark for performance and safety.FeaturesWeight 43gStrength Gate Closed 24kNStrength Gate Open 10kNStrength Minor-Axis 9kNGate Opening 21mmRope Bearing Surface Width 9.6mm

The Shadow is the lightest locker we do. It's an I Beam Offset D with a keylock nose making it perfect for rigging or where you want a runner to be extra secure. The Shadow range utilize I Beam technology, a process where our designers have optimised the aluminium needed to create light but incredibly strong carabiners. Biners in this range are also anodised for protection against the elements especially coastal and rigourous mountain enviroments.
