Rock Exotica Carabiners

Rock Exotica has been one of the leading companies manufacturing carabiners, ascenders, and specialty rigging devices for years, and are behind many of the innovations we take for granted in tree climbing today. Rock Exotica manufactures some of the best carabiners in the world right here in the U.S.A., in addition to actually manufacturing some of the carabiners sold by big international companies in the U.S. Rock Exotica carabiners feature a pull-down gate which is easier to open with one hand.

car140
Brk Str 5,845 lb (27 kN)
Height 4.2”

Weight 3.12 oz
Gate 1” (key lock)

For advanced users only!

The popular Pirate carabiner with the new ORCA locking gate.

The new ORCA (Open Regular Close Auto) Locking System deploys with the ease and quickness of a non-locker and shuts with the security of an autolock. The ORCA is a unique autolock sleeve/gate that can be set in the unlocked position. With the gate in the “set” position it is ready to function like a non-locker but the act of opening the gate "triggers" it and when the gate closes, it will autolock just like a regular autolocking carabiner. Ideal for aerial rescue, complex haul systems, etc.
