Rhino HMS

The Rhino HMS carabiner tackles cross loading head on! The horn feature on the leading edge of the spine significantly reduces the possibility of cross loading with rigging, devices and pulleys by restricting the rotation of devices, whilst the clean nose design provides snag-free gate entry. The smooth and robust top bar is contrasted by our signature I-Beam construction on the non-rope bearing surfaces.

HMS connectors are pear shaped and often have similar characteristics to ovals in how they deal with loaded components, i.e. they also allow devices and connectors to self-centre. Moreover, the extended basket allows for additional component connection. Knots in a system such as an Italian hitch can rotate easily between taking in and paying out (even with larger diameter ropes). In general, HMS connectors are slightly oversized to accommodate the added volume of bigger ropes and to feel secure in a gloved hand.

Introducing the Rhino

Rhino product features

An overview of the features and benefits of the Rhino HMS carabiner.

Kwiklock
Kwiklock - Auto-locking gate requiring two separate actions to open. Kwiklock gates are suitable when auto-locking gates are a necessity, but rigging systems are relatively static and anchor points are easy to monitor.
Locksafe
Locksafe - An auto-locking gate requiring three separate actions to open. Locksafe gates give extra security in complex rigging systems such as those featuring running ropes or remote anchor points.
Screwgate
Screwgate - Non auto-locking gate which requires two actions to open, and is easy to use with one hand. Screwgates are suitable in systems where anchor points can be easily monitored and are unlikely to be affected by running ropes.
