A carabiner is an essential tool for any backpacker, climber or adventurer.
When used with your Trek Light Hammock you can sleep well knowing that you're securely clipped in to your surroundings and supported by the strongest means possible. But these are not just a hammock accessory by any means, our carabiners have an endless number of uses on the trail or around the home.
Carabiners are everywhere on the market today, so what makes a Trek Light Carabiner so special?
Trek Light Carabiners weigh in at less than an ounce (.8oz) and hold up to 1100lbs (500kg)!! We encourage you to do the research - nearly every carabiner on the market either supports less weight, weighs more, or costs much more. Upgrade your hammock with a pair of these carabiners or buy some just to have with you when you'll need it most. It may feel right at home on your keychain, but this is no trinket - rest assured you're purchasing one of the lightest and strongest carabiners on the market today.
NOTE: These carabiners are not intended for climbing use. In the case of a fall while climbing, the amount of force pulling down on the carabiner could easily be greater than 1100lbs. Our carabiners are perfectly suited for supporting a static load up to 1100lbs, but if you are looking for a rock climbing carabiner you need to buy one specifically designed for the task.
