The Omega Tephra Pitch Quik-Lok Carabiner can be easily incorporated in toprope anchors, multi-pitch belays and more. It’s a general-use, multipurpose ‘biner that feels great in the hand and works well for belaying and rappelling.
The unique hot-forged frame makes the Tephra one of the strongest belay carabiners, which is why it’s named after the Greek word for “erupted elements from a volcano.”
The major axis strength is rated at 27kN with a burly 10kN open-gate strength.
The narrow, low-profile nose and keylock design make smooth, snag-free connections to belay loops, rappel devices, webbing and gear loops.
Omega Quik-Lok carabiners automatically lock whenever the gate is closed
