The Light D is one of SMC’s smallest and lightest aluminum carabiners weighing in at a mere 1.7 oz while being nearly identical in strength to the SMC Oval. As an essential part of the SMC carabiner line, the Light D is built using the same internal stainless steel components as all SMC carabiners assuring that quality, form fit and function are never compromised.

The low profile tabs help make clipping easy and hassle-free. The Light D incorporates design, excellence and attention to detail the world has come to love in all SMC products.
