CMC Fundamentals: Carabiner Gate Types

By CMC

Welcome to CMC Fundamentals, a series created for technicians who are just getting started in the industry or who want to build their knowledge base. In this video, CMC demonstrates the functionality of four different carabiner gate types: non-locking, screw-locking, manual-locking, and auto-locking. This is a basic review of the typical carabiners used by technicians in rescue and access. It does not cover all the possible options available. If you have any questions about equipment or education, please email the CMC Instructors at askaninstructor@cmcpro.com or visit the CMC School page for class schedules.
