Pirate Auto-Lock



BRANDRock Exotica
PRODUCT TYPEHMS (pear) Carabiner

Rock Exotica's popular Pirate carabiner is an excellent positive locking carabiner with a handy HMS shape that makes it great for attaching to figure eights, flipline adjusters, or other hardware, and metal sleeve with a pull-down action to open the gate.

The precision manufacturing, excellent design, and high strength of this carabiner make it a great choice for a wide variety of tree climbing applications, which is why you"ll find the Pirate in WesSpur's tree climbing starter kits and flipline kits.


  • Manufacturer: Rock Exotica
  • Breaking strength: 26 kN (5,845 lb)
  • Material: aluminum
  • Dimensions: 107 x 74mm (4.2 x 2.75")
  • Gate opening: 25mm (1")
  • Weight: 90 g 3.2 oz
  • Made in the USA

    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. This motion is more intuitive and natural for your hand than lifting up and away from your palm. Once you try it, you’re likely to never go back!

    Each carabiner is individually proof-tested and made in the U.S.A.

    This is a little bulky for my hands, but works great when I need to attach multiple things to the top end

    This is the shape for you if you are looking for something to help with a rope wrench or run a munter hitch. The pull down motion can't be beat.
