Belay Master


-Belay carabiner for consistent rope control and compatibility with belay devices: Belay carabiners give smooth and confident belaying with tube and assisted breaking belay devices. They have full section top bars for consistent rope control and reduced rope wear. Their shape resists flipping into sub-optimal orientations when belaying, acting to ensure the carabiner loads along its strongest axis.

-Offset D carabiner for optimal loading and ergonomics: D-Shaped carabiners encourage loading in their strongest orientation by forcing loads toward the carabiner spine. An Offset D refines this basic design by extending the top bar, increasing internal volume. This improves handling and compatibility with thick ropes and slings.
-Nylon clip ensures carabiner loads correctly
-Full section top bar for consistent rope handling and increased longevity: A rope running over a full section top bar has more consistent handling characteristics than one running over an I-Beam surface. Our belay carabiners feature full section top bars for greater control rope control. Ropes loading over full section bar also bend less than those loaded over I-Beam surfaces, increasing rope longevity
-Keylock nose eliminates snagging
-I-Beam construction for optimum strength to weight ratio: I-Beam construction techniques allow carabiners to be lighter without compromising strength. This is achieved through hot forging, a process which allows metal to be made into complex shapes that improve functionality.

Closing the clip on the Belay Master 2 ensures the carabiner is safe for use. It can only be closed when the gate is screwed shut.

When closed, the clip keeps the carabiner in its strongest orientation, prevents devices and knots from moving onto the spine, eliminates possible cross loading due to rotation. This feature makes the Belay Master the perfect belay carabiner for those new to belaying.

The carabiner comes as standard with a matt grey anodised finish, but can also be supplied with a matt black anodised finish or with more specialist Ceracote finishes in a range of tactical colours from artic white to desert coyote. The Ceracote coatings are also available with a reduced IR signature.
