About Non-Locking Carabiners:
Not all of your carabiners need to lock you know. Sure, a non locking carabiner might not be as safe for belaying, but their speed and precision makes them an excellent choice for quickdraws.
You wouldn’t go golfing with just one club, so it stands to reason that having a diverse selection of tools in other sports is also beneficial. Rock climbing is no different from any other activity in that being adequately prepared is the first step in being successful. Adequate preparation means having all kinds of carabiners at your disposal.
The top brands in climbing have produced these, the finest selection of the best non locking carabiners in the world of outdoor sports. We’ve gone ahead and made sure that all of these carabiners are up to snuff in terms of safety, style and durability. I know you probably are wondering why style is important, it’s because I like to use an actual carabiner for a key chain. You never know when someone is going to need to do some spur of the moment climbing so I think it’s best to always be at least a little prepared and carry a load bearing carabiner.
I also used a non locking carabiner to escape from a fancy restaurant full of the undead once. I was cornered in the cooler, certain death shuffling towards me moaning for my brains. I did an awesome power slide on both knees and got behind the marauding creatures. I exited the walk in and slammed the door behind me, I detached my carabiner from my keys and used it to clip the door shut. Since my non locking carabiner was weight bearing it could withstand all of the pounding on the door that echoed down the empty hallways as I made my escape.
