The Beal Twin Smith Captive is a large capacity, asymmetrical steel locking carabiner for both in- and outdoor lower-offs subjected to intensive use
The Twin Smith features the Twin-Gate concept with a second wire gate. Twin Gate is a revolutionary concept for locking a carabiner, patented by Grivel/ Simond. Clipping the rope is easier than with a classic HMS screwgate carabiner, making it ideal for use at a lower-off at the top of a route.
The 11mm round profile reduces abrasion and sheath slippage when top roping. Its removable captive bar holds the Twin Smith Captive in place on equipment it is clipped into.
