Cross Loading Carabiners
Beware: This makes carabiners break A LOT lower
Beware: This makes carabiners break A LOT lower Carabiners break pretty reliably when pulled the way they are intended, but cross loading them can happen from the nose getting stuck to a sling catching on the gate, so what ACTUALLY happens when you cross load a carabiner. OUR RESULTS Trango was the hardest to get stuck in a cross load orientation, locking carabiners were easy to cross load, and the steel carabiner was way higher than MBS. They sure broke weird. The wire gates would flip 180 and get stuck on the spine. What's Next What happens if you put 3 carabiners in one hanger?
