Product Info

The asymmetrical aluminum Am'D carabiner has a D shape particularly suited for connection to diverse equipment such as descenders or positioning lanyards. Its fluid interior design and Keylock system facilitate manipulations. The AmD carabiner is available in three locking systems: SCREW-LOCK manual system or TRIACT-LOCK and BALL-LOCK automatic systems.

The D shape of the Am'D is particularly suited for connection to equipment such as descenders or positioning lanyards. It can be connected to the CAPTIV bar to favor positioning of the carabiner along the major axis, to limit the risk of it flipping and to keep it integrated with the device.

Key Features
  • Great functionality, thanks to its capacity and dimensions:
    - efficient shape for use on either end of the carabiner (belay systems)
    - carabiner can hold a large quantity of equipment
  • Good handling and ergonomics:
    - D shape for good handling
    - shape designed for gripping with gloves on
    - Keylock system to avoid any involuntary snagging of the carabiner
  • Available in three locking systems, each for different situations:
    - SCREW-LOCK: occasional use, dirty environments
    - BALL-LOCK: frequent use with practical automatic locking; secure use with triple-action opening
    - TWIST-LOCK: specific use when quick opening is key (e.g. at the end of a lanyard) and when connecting a GRIGRI to the harness
