The auto-lock carabiner is essential in tree climbing. Rock Exotica's auto-locking carabiners are some of the finest on the market, and available in 3 shapes so you can get the perfect carabiner for your tree climbing system. A unique feature of Rock Exotica's auto-locking carabiners is a pull-down gate. Making the first motion of opening the carabiner gate a pull-down rather than a push-up makes these carabiners easier to open one-handed, with gloves, or when reaching above the climber's head. Each carabiner is individually proof-tested and made in the U.S.A.

Rock Exotica auto-locking carabiners are available in 3 shapes: Pirate (Offset D), Rock D (Asymmetrical D), and Rock O (Oval).

New Options! The Pirate and RockO are now also available with a WireEye wire keeper to keep your rope or belay loop where it belongs.

Safety & Technical Information

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.
