The assymetric design of this carabiner places more of the load on the stronger, non-gate side - thus increasing its overall strength. Widely recognized for their first-rate materials, design and workmanship, Wichard products are highly documented, ISO 9001 certified, and backed by a 5-year warranty. All Wichard snap hooks are hot forged and passivated, providing exceptional reliability, eliminating internal structural defects and protecting against oxidation.
