mousquetons ANGE

Carabiners and quickdraws for multi-pitch and mountain routes

The new ANGE carabiners use the MonoFil Keylock wire gate system developed by Petzl. This system, halfway between the traditional gate mechanism and the classic wire gate system, combines the best of these two technologies to ensure an extremely smooth opening and closing movement. It has an exclusive H-profile, guaranteeing an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.

ANGE S and ANGE L carabiners open and close smoothly with Petzl's MonoFil Keylock system. This exclusive system uses a spring mechanism similar to that found in standard-gate carabiners. This mechanism lasts twice as long as that found on standard wire-gate carabiners.

To guarantee optimal efficiency, all Petzl carabiners use the Keylock system: the body/gate interface does not have a hook that could snag on anchors, ropes, harness equipment loops, etc.

The H-profile of the ANGE S and ANGE L carabiners is thicker on the inside part, easing passage of the rope while optimizing durability.

Indent for STRING

The indent on the bottom of the ANGE S and ANGE L carabiners helps keep the STRING in place so that the sling is properly positioned on the carabiner.

Shape of the nose

Listen to the unique sound of the ANGE

The click of a closing carabiner can be part of the communication between members of a climbing team. It's even more true on long routes, when it is the climber isn't visible or when it's difficult to talk to one another. The sound of the carabiner can signal to the climber that an out-of-sight carabiner is clipped. It can also signal to the belayer that the climber will be needing slack soon (as when a bolt or piece of gear is clipped) or that the climber has clipped the rope.
