A reforging of the strongest and best-selling carabiner designs in the world.
The new Force series carabiners from SMC offer unparalleled strength to weight ratios thanks to the ISO Cold Forging process. This carabiner manufacturing technique, originally developed by Omega Pacific, produces exceptional strength and durability by pressing raw materials into the strongest possible designs while avoiding issues like internal fissures and deformations that can happen during other forging processes. Combined with the highest quality aluminum alloys, the result is a lightweight connector that is the strongest in its class. SMC continues to enhance this proven process by applying our unmatched design and manufacturing quality processes.
Force Series D and the Oval carabiners have smooth, rounded inside diameters for great interface with ropes and webbing.
