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. 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! (If you do want a push-up sleeve, that's now available in the Up-Rock Carabiners.

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).

Wire-Eye:Pirate and RockO now available with a WireEye wire keeper to keep your rope or belay loop where it belongs.

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.
