RockD Stainless Information

Not only is the frame made from stainless steel, but also the components within the carabiner. Each piece will resist corrosion far beyond the equivalent materials found in other non-stainless carabiners.

The rockD features several unique Rock Exotica design elements: snag-resistant keylock nose design, lock-status indicator, precision machined frame, and an angled gate for maximum gate opening.

  • Asymmetric D shape maximizes strength along major axis
  • Precision machined parts for smooth & ergonomic operation
  • All stainless-steel parts
  • Rock Exotica carabiner design elements: keylock nose, lock-status indicator, machined frame, and angled gate.

Auto-Lock Information

Rock Exotica identified several surfaces where ropes and lanyards can be held up by the edges of the gate and sleeve, which can lead to dangerous cross-loading. They designed their auto-lock sleeve with beveled edges to minimize this risk, and provide a smoother interior for the materials connected to the carabiner.

  • Ergonomic pull-down and twist action
  • Beveled edges provide smooth operating surfaces
  • Large and ergonomic angled gate opening

Screw-lock Information

First, all aluminum parts are anodized. This is particularly important for the screw-sleeve and gate, since without this coating, it is more susceptible to corrosion. This protective surface also gives the sleeve a smoother spin.

Second, the gate was designed with an enlarged flange at the top. This prevents the screw-sleeve from moving past the end of the gate, whereas with other designs, the sleeve can wear past the last thread of the gate and slip off. The Screw-lock mechanism is available on the Pirate, rockD and rockO carabiners.

  • Features all anodized parts for smooth operation and increased longevity
  • Gate design prevents screw-sleeve from detaching from gate.
  • Snag-resistant keylock nose design
  • Large and ergonomic angled gate opening
  • Machined frame ensures tight tolerances and smooth operation
