As an HMS, or pear-shaped carabiner, the Pirate easily accommodates the use of a wide range of gear, webbing or ropes - either as a belay biner at the harness, or as a connector in a system. The Pirate's robust 0.5" diameter round frame will endure abuse from dirty ropes and metal connectors far beyond stamped carabiners with thin edges. The Pirate's durability matched with Rock Exotica's build quality ensures an impressive service life for the working professional or recreational enthusiast.
Wide top radius allows munter hitch belay, or the connection of multiple items
Durable 0.5" round-stock frame
Snag-resistant keylock nose design
Large and ergonomic angled gate opening
Machined frame ensures tight tolerances and smooth operation
ORCA LOCK The ORCA is an enhanced 3-stage mechanism available on Pirate, rockD and rockO carabiners. This unique gate system lifts up and twists just like many traditional auto-locks, but can be set to remain in the unlocked position. This allows the gate—whether you attach the ORCA carabiner immediately, or leave it installed in an anchor to connect a line later, to open easily, just like a non-locker. When it closes, it closes and rotates shut with the safety and surety of a locking carabiner.
Set to the "ready" position to open gate like a non-locker
Use ORCA in situations when quick access is required.
WIRE-EYE The WireEye series of carabiners combines the utility of a standard carabiner with the safety and capability of a lanyard pin, or captive eye. The WireEye holds gear, lanyards and lines with enough resistance to help prevent gear from moving past the end of the carabiner, but releases easily when lifted up. When the potential for dangerous leverage or cross-loading can occur, the WireEye helps keep the carabiner oriented correctly, and the gear where it belongs. The WireEye is available on the Pirate and rockO frames in 3-stage auto-lock, and screw-lock on the Pirate frame.
Releasable wire gate gives you quick access to capture and release lines or gear
Takes the place of a fixed lanyard pin or captive-eye carabiner when a permanent hold is not needed
Use as a standard carabiner with the added benefit of the wire restraint
Features the same strength and quality characteristics as the non-WireEye carabiners
