  Types of carabiners

Osaka Dan discusses his preferences when it comes to carabiners and swivels. The main take-away is not to trust any kit that isn't designed for human loads.

However, rated climbing and aerial equipment gives you a very comfortable safety margin and offers a very wide choice of designs.
