With no luck getting a hold of carabiners in good colors MSM had to take matters into their our own hands. These are great Pear / HMS shape S-Screwlock carabiners; Light weight aluminum sporting a classic pin nose for the most strength. The Pear shape offers a large gate opening and can be a belay device using a HMS knot. The screw lock is well knurled for a solid grip while the screw itself is designed so it can’t be overtightened. Finally for a small detail, markings are stamped rather than etched to keep as much of the carabiner properly colored as possible. Meets UIAA standards.
