Constructed from heavy duty, aircraft grade aluminium alloy, these wire-gate carabiners can withstand a staggering 1223 kilograms of force (12kn). With more than enough capacity to safely suspend a hammock, they are perfectly suited to hammock camping as they are ultralight, compact and do not attract the unnecessary weight burden of higher rated carabiners. They are also suited to a host of other outdoor applications and are a useful addition to any adventurers kit.
HEAVY DUTY: Constructed from precipitation-hardened Aluminium alloy and able to withstand a force of up to 1223 kilograms.
ULTRALIGHT: Despite their high strength rating, these carabiners are ultralight, weighing in at only 18 grams.
SUPERIOR QUALITY: These carabiners are continually tested by our team in Australia and are individually inspected prior to dispatch to ensure the highest level of quality is maintained.
RUST-PROOF: Aluminium alloy is completely resistant to rust.
DESIGNED FOR HAMMOCKS: Whilst these ultralight carabiners are suited to various outdoor applications, their quick-release wire-gate design right through to their compact shape and 12kN weight rating makes them the perfect carabiner for hammock camping.

Great quality carabiner - sturdy, strong and cool looking. Exactly what you want.
Quite impressed with the quality of the caribiners. Will definately get a few more for quick system set up.
I purchased a hammock from Alton, I haven't been out with it yet. So far, in my back yard tests I like the quality & ease of use.
