Closing the clip on the Belay Master 2 ensures the carabiner is safe for use. It can only be closed when the gate is screwed shut.
When closed, the clip keeps the carabiner in its strongest orientation, prevents devices and knots from moving onto the spine, eliminates possible cross-loading due to rotation.
Strength (Gate Closed): 25kN
Strength (Gate Open): 8kN
Strength (Minor Axis): 10kN
Gate Opening: 20mm
Dimensions: 70 X 115mm
HMS for space and rigging
HMS connectors are pear shaped and often have similar characteristics to ovals in how they deal with loaded components, i.e. they also allow devices and connectors to self-centre. Moreover, the extended basket allows for additional component connection. Knots in a system such as an Italian hitch can rotate easily between taking in and paying out (even with larger diameter ropes). In general, HMS connectors are slightly oversized to accommodate the added volume of bigger ropes and to feel secure in a gloved hand.
Belay Master Clip reduces any cross loading possibility
The Belay Master's nylon clip prevents accidental opening of the locking mechanism, and ensures the carabiner loads in its strongest orientation. This makes an ideal belay carabiner for new climbers.
Keylock clean nose for snag free connection
DMM's patented 'Taperlock' closing mechanism increases gate push-in and cross gate strength using a special flared profile on the nose of the carabiner, as well as allowing a snag free connection for your ropes, slings and devices.
