1 daN (Dekanewton) = 10 N (newton)  ≈ 1 kg

Lightweight and safe:
Snaplock carabiners are drop-forged instead of bent which results in increased material strength. The material of bent carabiners, in contrast, is weakened by inner tensions in the bended areas.
With an open gate breaking load of 1.600 daN, the Snaplock can bear approx. four times more load than conventional paragliding carabiners. Snaplock carabiners weigh a mere 76 g and thus save approx. 150 g of weight compared with steel carabiners.

Universal fit:
The Snaplock is suitable for band widths of 25-30 mm and narrower

Thanks to its distinctive “nose”, the Snaplock can be attached to the harness in such a way that a sidewise turning is reliably prevented. Moreover, harness manufacturers have the possibility to use the nose for back strap attachment. Back support can thus be significantly improved.
