Interesting Carabiner

Interesting little carabiner. It's made with strong nylon-type plastic, holds 30#, gathers up a lot of stuff and only weighs 11.3 Grams

They're about a dollar apiece on ebay. I searched for Grimloc Carabiners.

I got three before the $10 tariff starts ...

I like to use my stuff I have for climbing. They've taken falls and I know they'll hold up on the river in SWR situations.

Its a MOLLE carabiner. A few companies are making them now. Nice for attaching stuff to all of your "tacticool" molle gear.

Bending them open to the farthest it will go ( about 90 deg. beyond the normal stop ) ended the detents when opening and closing. Now the gate swings freely.

Lots of counterfeits (yours look like the real ones) but the ‘real’ grimlocs are made by ITW - Illinois Tool Works here in the states.

I have been meaning to get a couple for my pfd - I like the fact they break at 60 pounds or so if they are attached to me
