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.

Best Biner

by Ian

Nice and lightweight, but extremely strong, the RockD can be used anywhere you need a D carabiner with the added bonus of Rock Exotica's ease of operation with one hand, even for smaller handed people.
