As the need for purpose built professional equipment grew, so did our product lines. The demand for quality, high strength carabiners at a fair price has lead us to change our forging techniques and design approach to better meet those needs. Although hot forging is a more costly and time consuming process when compared to cold forging, the end results are more favorable. Manufacturing in this manner allows us to remove weight where it is not needed and add material along the spine to boost strength and durability. Our newer products feature intricate designs and geometry that can only be achieved through a precise hot forging process that removes weight without sacrificing strength.
