Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

DMM Carabiners Vault Lock Carabiner Silver/Red A552. The locking mechanism gives the climber the option to manually select either open or locked allowing the Vault (patent pending) to behave like a standard racking biner on the dreamy pure ice pitch but with a twist of the gate you secure your expensive ice screws for the horror show mixed chimney or for carrying your axes on the descent.


Unlike most pull-apart plastic hangers, DMM's metal Vault secures your ice tools throughout the climb. The wire gate keeps the Vault as light as its plastic predecessors, and the locking gate secures your valuable ice screws and axes on approaches and descents.


Features of The DMM Vault Locking Carabiner Safe, strong and secure racking for ice screws and tools Available as wire gate or locking gate Locking version can be set to either the unlocked or locked position Low profile nose minimises hook ups Low profile locking mechanism does not affect clipping Compatible with most Climbing harnesses featuring ice clipper slots
