Complementing the versions that already exist, the Am'd and William in Lock, Spinball and Ball Lock versions, this Tri-act version of the Am'd and William carabiners gives automatic locking with greater security while remaining simple to manipulate, even with gloves. The Tri-act system reduces the risk of accidental unlocking as 3 successive actions are required to open the carabiner (push the sleeve upward - turn - open the gate). Initially designed for industrial applications, this locking system, which is easily manipulated with one hand, is also highly appreciated by rescue teams and by climbers. The opening mechanism is unique in that it has a push and twist action to unlock. When the open gate it released, it automatically locks itself again. THis is one of the safety designs Petzl has added to their popular large capacity William carabiner. Specs: a Weight: 88 g. a Gate opening: 24 mm. a Strenght: 25kN, 7kN, 7kN. a High performance aluminum alloy. Note that this item of climbing safety equipment is non-returnable.
