High-strength oval carabiner

OXAN is a high-strength steel carabiner designed for use in difficult environments. The oval, symmetrical shape allows optimal loading of the carabiner when setting up anchors or connecting to metal structures. Available in two locking systems: automatic TRIACT-LOCK system or manual SCREW-LOCK system. OXAN can be connected to the CAPTIV bar to favor positioning of the carabiner along the major axis, to limit the risk of it flipping and to keep it integrated with the device.

Detailed description


  • High-strength steel carabiner for use in harsh environments, particularly suitable for setting up anchors or for connecting to metal structures
  • Oval symmetrical shape allows optimal positioning of the carabiner
  • Easier handling:
    - fluid interior design limits the risk of having a catch point and facilitates rotation of the carabiner
    - Keylock system to avoid any involuntary snagging of the carabiner
  • H cross-section:
    - ensures an optimal strength/weight ratio
    - protects markings from abrasion
  • Two locking systems available:
    - SCREW-LOCK: the manual screw-lock with red band provides a visual warning when the carabiner is unlocked
    - TRIACT-LOCK: automatic locking with triple-action gate opening
  • May be used with a CAPTIV positioning bar to favor loading of the carabiner along the major axis, to keep it integrated with the device, and to limit the risk of it flipping


  • Material(s): steel
