Carabiners


How Strong Is That Carabiner?

Most carabiners are stamped with the major axis strength measured in kilonewtons. | The kN, or kilonewton, measures the amount of force the carabiner can accept, as opposed to how much mass it can hold in a static situation. Objects with relatively low mass (like a person) can generate substantial energy (force) when accelerating, so it can be misleading if a piece of climbing or fall-arrest equipment were rated in terms of pounds or kilograms. In order to convert kilonewtons into pounds-of-force (another measure of force, not mass), simply multiply the rating in kN by 224.8 (1kN = 224.8 lbf). Carabiners are traditionally stamped with the major axis strength measured in kilonewtons.

On Jan. 20, 2020 Omega Pacific, one of the U.S.’s largest manufacturers of carabiners announced that it would be winding down operations after 37 years in business stating the pronouncement was based on economic factors and the owner’s decision to retire. Seattle Manufacturing Corporation (SMC) has purchased the tooling and machinery to produce Omega Pacific’s top selling carabiners – specifically the ISO forged D’s, Ovals, and select HMS models. The Omega name will be removed from the carabiners and the line will become SMC’s new “Force” series. All technical specifications as well as the NSN numbers will remain the same. Models will include both the locking and non-locking styles and will be offered in the same popular color options. -- Gripped Canada’s Climbing Magazine.

SMC / Seattle Manufacturing Corporation | SMC is one of America’s most trusted technical rescue brands. Founded in 1967, as Seattle Manufacturing Corporation, during the golden age of high-altitude mountaineering, their products have accompanied many of the Northwest’s finest climbers on historic ascents of peaks like K2 and Everest. Their products expanded into the rescue market as climbers of the 60’s and 70’s became the rescue experts of the 80’s. They required durable hardware that would reliably perform in the demanding rescue environment. This request for stronger, more sophisticated products launched SMC’s technical rescue division. SMC

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 their 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.
