HMS Compact Lock

Regular price $14.95 Save $-14.95

Keylocking HMS carabiner with screw gate closure. The unique rounded design positions ropes perfectly for rappels and creates a very wide gate opening with substantial inner working space. Unlike many belay carabiners, the HMS Compact has no corners so ropes have nowhere to bunch. This results in less friction for smoother rappels and belays and helps keep heat to a minimum on long rappels.

  • Extremely smooth belay and rappel carabiner with secure screw lock
  • Curved spine offers exceptional clearance
  • Large opening and keylock nose make clipping ropes and webbing easy

My favorite carabiner! The large rounded basket is great for stacking and loading while multipitch climbing. It's great on repels and holds a clove hitch perfectly. It's not the lightest carabiner, but with a solid feeling twist lock and great functionality I never leave it at home.
