Carabiner keepers are made from 1-2″ of high strength nylon tubing. This material will protect your hardware and create a barrier for friction on your equipment.
The carabiner keeper slips onto your carabiner and act as a buffer between them and the other hardware pieces. They will slowly begin to wear down instead of your hardware. They create a longer lasting, safer set of equipment.
We recommend using two keepers per carabiner – One for the top, and one for the bottom.
I started using these carabiner keepers recently on my hardware and it makes a marked difference in the noise for sure! I really love the fact that my hardware is better protected and will have a longer life, as well as the fact that I don’t hear my hardware banging against itself anymore. Its quite a nice benefit. Good Product.
My rigger set these up on my latest set of hardware, and I had never seen them before. But, they are really nice. He showed me how to check them for wear, and I really think they give me a much better sense of my equipment.
They are very easy to use and to adjust. They also seem very durable to good for the task.
