ORCA lock carabiners are new type of auto-locking carabiner which can be set so that gate is ready to open without the normal motions of a Triaction gate, and then auto-locks when it is clipped onto a connection point. This Open Regular Close Auto (O.R.C.A.) gate design makes these carabiners ideal for setting up complex rigging, rescue, or other operations where the climber does not want to spend a lot of time fiddling with opening the carabiner gate. Every ORCA carabiner has a padlock on the gate which only shows when the gate is closed and locked, so that it is easy to tell when the carabiner is set to open and when it is secure.

The ORCA carabiners are available in the same 3 shapes as Rock Exotica's most popular Triaction carabiners: Pirate (Offset D), Rock D (Asymmetrical D), and Rock O (Oval).

Climbing Carabiner Guidelines

  • Carabiners used to support the climber should have minimum 5,000 lb breaking strength.
  • Life support carabiners should be auto-locking and auto-closing.
  • Carabiner strengths vary greatly when not loaded along the major axis (along the spine).
  • Always verify carabiner gates are closed and locked.

ANSI Z133-2017

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has released the ANSI Z133 safety requirements which apply to arboricultural operations.

"Carabiners used in climbing shall be self-closing and self-locking, with a minimum tensile strength of 5,000 pounds (22.24 kN)." - ANSI Z133-2017 8.1.11

The full ANSI Z133 safety requirements are available on our tree care standards page.
