The Large Aluminum Locking D is identical in size to our very popular Large Steel Rescue Carabiner except for the fact that it is constructed entirely of aluminum rather than steel. Light in weight, this is a great multipurpose carabiner and an ideal choice for situations such as are found in mountain rescue, where weight is a concern and carabiner volume and strength are equally critical.
You’ll have to look long and hard for a lighter weight steel carabiner that meets the NFPA “G” ratings. Aptly described as a “hybrid” the Lite Alloy incorporates a stainless steel gate and locking sleeve for superb action, greater strength and exceptional reliability. The sleeve locks on the gate rather than the body of the carabiner, eliminating problems of the knob binding on the frame once the carabiner has been loaded.
The SMC Micro U-Rack assembly is the smallest and lightest of all SMC Rappel Racks. The design is based on the same principles of our proven NFPA Rappel Racks but more suited for sport climbing and caving expeditions.
The SMC Micro PMPs (singles and doubles) are exactly what you need. These are the smallest of three sizes of Prusik Minding Pulleys made by SMC, but dont let their small size cause you to question their performance! These pulleys are designed and manufactured to the same high quality standards as our full-sized PMPs.
One of the lightest yet strongest mini-rigging plates on the market, built with high quality 6061 aircraft grade aluminum for strength, durability, corrosion resistance, and years of reliability. Designed to serve as either a belay device or a collection point for multiple anchors and/or rigging points – but that certainly doesn’t exclude it from a host of other tasks.
The SMC X-Large Locking Steel Carabiner is manufactured using high quality Alloy Steel for optimal ratio of strength to weight. The off set D shape results in a larger gate opening that easily fits over litter rails. The sleeve locks on the gate rather than the body of the carabiner, eliminating problems of the knob binding on the frame once the carabiner has been loaded. The X-Large Locking Steel carabiners are third party certified by Underwriters Laboratories to meet NFPA 1983 “G” General Use.
