These are nice because they cost less than stainless rap rings. I used them to rig a cave once.


  • Lightweight
  • Less cost


  • Aluminum doesn't last as long as stainless

Rigged several rappels with these so I could retrieve the rope. You would want these if you need light weight or are on a budget and need to set up a lot of rap anchors.
