With four variations making up the Falcon family, it can easily be considered one of the more versatile carabiners in the Sterling line. Each carabiner shares the same time tested and in the field tested compact pear shape body made from strong and lightweight 7075-T6 aluminum. The differences come from the types of closure locks on the carabiners and the feature called the Talon. Falcon SL : The Falcon screw gate is the same Falcon design, but features a screw gate that moves vertically on a threaded gate, creating a secure connection between the carabiner and the top of the gate. Falcon AL : The auto locking version of the Falcon comes features a 3 stage, spring loaded barrel that closes over the gate when released. The auto locking Falcon adds a little more security when in use than the screw gate, because the screw lock can come loose easier. But regardless of which lock a carabiner is made with always double check the carabiners to be sure the locking mechanism is active. Talon feature for Falcon : The Talon feature is a wire gate closure which helps keep the carabiner in proper orientation on your harness when in use or when belaying.
