ANSI-Rated Carabiners

Many climbers are turning to carabiners that meet the ANSI z359 standard for Fall Arrest Systems. This standard puts a minimum strength requirement on all axes of the carabiner, including when side-loaded. This minimum rating msut meet or exceed 3,600 lbs (16 kN). The carabiner and gate must have this rating marked, and the body must have this rating and the minor axis load rating.

DMM Klettersteig ANSI Gate Carabiner

DMM Klettersteig ANSI Gate Carabiner

Brk Str 6,744 lb (30 kN) Height 4.72” Width 3” Weight 3.84 oz Gate .82” (key lock)

Klettersteig carabiner's wide gate opening and long flat basket make it ideal for clipping webbing and for use in complex rope-running applications. The expanded D shape also keeps the load along the major axis maximising strength. Large size makes it easy to use with gloved hands.

Klettersteig connectors look and behave very similarly to Offset Ds, but are wider. This design helps maximise the gate opening and the internal working volume, whilst still allowing any loads to be located as close to the spine of the connector as possible. Klettersteig connectors must pass an additional test to any of the other connectors as they are often subjected to loads in sub-optimal orientations.

ANSI Locksafe gate gives extra security in complex rigging systems such as those featuring running ropes and remote anchors. ANSI Locksafe gates rate to a minimum 16kN in minor axis, side loading and gate face loading tests, and conform to ANSI Z359.12 (2009).
