The Rock Exotica Pirate ORCA (Open Regular Close Auto) carabiner has an enhanced 3-stage barrel mechanism which lifts and twists like traditional auto-locks but can be set to remain in the un-locked 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 - this carabiner is for expert users only.
Primarily designed as a belay carabiner, the Rock Exotica Pirate is also a popular carabiner with rope access and rescue practitioners.
Patented key-lock nose, so no more rope snag. Rock Exotica's carabiners have the highest inward gate/sleeve strength (7kN on the Pirate).
Weighs in at only 89 g. Designed and manufactured in the USA. All Rock Exotica carabiners are individually tested to half their rated strength.
