DMM Rhino Screw Gate Carabiner
After observing sport climbers modifying belay biners with rubber bungs to prevent cross-loading with certain belay devices, DMM came up with this cleaner solution. The horn on the Rhino prevents assisted locking belay devices from rotating off the top bar and on to the spine, reducing the risk of crossloading.
The Rhino also works well with certain DMM pulleys and other standard belay devices. The full cross section of the top bar means greater wear resistance, and smooth operation in guide mode. The horn makes identification by feel on the rear gear loop easier, and the clean nose design provides snag-free loading and unloading of ropes. The big burly top bar is contrasted by DMM's signature I-Beam construction on non-rope bearing surfaces, resulting in a total weight of 72 grams.
