  • safety carabiner locks when closed
    Ball Locking Carabiner$28.95
    When safety is paramount, this Petzl aluminum caribiner will never accidentally open. Requires a press of the green button and a twist of the collar to open. Won't open by rope friction, etc. which is a problem with many other locking 'biners. This is a personal favorite of mine.
