Figure 9 Carabiner
Nite Ize continues to impress us with its groundbreaking designs sold at affordable prices. Its patented Figure 9 Carabiner can secure, tighten, and tension ropes without the need for knots — especially useful if you have difficulty untying tight knots or use ropes that lose tension. Just weave the rope through the strategically engineered prongs, pull it tight, then connect the carabiner to an anchor. The Figure 9 can be used for all sorts of functions, from mundane tasks like securing boxes to a hand truck, to survival uses like building a shelter. While it’s not meant for climbing, it can hold a load of up to 150 pounds while weighing only 1.9 ounces itself.
