Zodiac

With a 32kN major axis strength rating, the Zodiac is strong enough for rescue loads and robust to withstand intense use by groups and centres. It is relatively light and compact for a rigging carabiner, making it easy to transport. A design that forces loads toward the spine, matched with its high strength rating, make the Zodiac appropriate for high load scenarios.

Rigging carabiners are used at critical connection points in rigging and anchor systems. They are built to be strong, and have large gate openings, internal volumes, and extended rope baskets. This makes them easier to handle with gloves on, and allows them to accommodate thick ropes, and multiple knots or slings.

Zodiac product features

An overview of the features and benefits of the Zodiac carabiner.

I’ve been using the Zodiacs for general climbing / belay rigging. The outstanding build quality and super smooth action gives you the same feeling as closing the door on a Mercedes – only cheaper! UKC
Anti-Vibe
Anti-Vibe - Non auto-locking gate which requires two actions to open, resists being vibrated open, and is easy to use with one hand. Anti-Vibe screwgates are suitable in systems where the gate is at risk of opening due to vibration, but the simplicity of a screwgate is required.
Kwiklock
Kwiklock - Auto-locking gate requiring two separate actions to open. Kwiklock gates are suitable when auto-locking gates are a necessity, but rigging systems are relatively static and anchor points are easy to monitor.
Locksafe
Locksafe - An auto-locking gate requiring three separate actions to open. Locksafe gates give extra security in complex rigging systems such as those featuring running ropes or remote anchor points.
Screwgate
Screwgate - Non auto-locking gate which requires two actions to open, and is easy to use with one hand. Screwgates are suitable in systems where anchor points can be easily monitored and are unlikely to be affected by running ropes.
