The Kong Tango Carabiner features an incredibly secure double gate keylock system made of aluminu . To open the carabiner push the rear gate with your palm while pulling the front gate with your fingers. The rear gate is protected in order to prevent accidental opening against the wall. Specifically conceived for use in via-ferrata sets and adventure parks lanyards.
- Extremely high quality carabiner, tested in Italy piece by piece.
Weight 130 Grams
Dimensions: 136mm x 70mm
I purchased this for use on my swift water rescue type 5 life vest and it is a perfect device for this activity. The gate locking mechanism is ingenious and prevents any accidental openings. This biner would also be perfect for low tech backcountry rappelling needs. It is robust yet extremely light. If you work around rope rigs or high angle scenarios this little piece of tech is a must have for your gear bag.
Love the easy one handed operation. A solid piece of hardware for almost any application. The only downside is Kong could have made the end ring larger for the attachment of larger diameter ropes... might have trouble attaching anything bigger than an 11mm rope (this of course is no fault of County Comm!)
I purchased the Kong carabiner for my oldest son to use on his job. He is currently working out of state and upon receiving it he loved it. He uses it on a daily basis for the many different problems he encounters while working.
Mike this is a very good idea and I will be purchasing two more, one for me and one for my youngest son, who likes to go camping.
