HoodWire Technology brings keylock functionality to a wiregate carabiner and is now available on our legendary, redesigned Oz carabiner. Its unique, stainless steel wire hood is a simple, strong design that wont snag when unclipping. The wire hood doesn't trap debris that could cause an open-gate failure, and protects the nose from wear.
We use two different forging methods to build carabinershot and cold forging. Each has its benefits and using both allows us to achieve the best possible shape, size and strength for each carabiners intended use. HOT FORGING, a process where both the rod stock and forge dies are heated, allows us to move the metal, creating more intricate shapes, such as our GridLock and Oz biners.
