|Summary:||extra large aluminum carabiner for use on ladders and scaffolds|
|Description & Commentary:|
Extra large steel carabiners designed for use with scaffolds, ladders and the like are common in the fire/rescue and industrial access. The DMM Ultra is made for similar purposes, but forged from much lighter aluminum. In the hand, this huge carabiner feels very light for what it is, while still boasting an impressive 38kN major axis strength rating and a reinforced gate. The trapezoidal cross section is wider than comparable steel carabiners, and may have trouble fitting through smaller anchorage points.
This particular example shows the dings and scratches of work-life, and the twist lock sticks on occasion.
