The SMC Oval was one of the first aluminum carabiners manufactured in the US during the 1960’s. This classic traditional carabiner is highly versatile and functionally designed to withstand the test of time. A major benefit of using a ‘’true’’ oval carabiner is that it is very difficult to load incorrectly. Load forces tend to "self-equalize" between the pulley, ropes and anchors in your system by balancing your load equally on the spine and gate allowing the carabiner to maintain full strength under a variety of conditions.
