Grivel - Vlad, carabiner with stop plate
The Vlad carabiner has a classic shape with the addition of three anchoring holes, in which we can connect three other carabiners. By integrating the carabiner with the anchor plate, the system is lighter, less bulky and more effective. Opening by means of the Twin-Gate lever-wire system, which does not require any additional maneuver (eg screwing), thus making it safer and faster than other systems. Furthermore, it allows to avoid accidental openings that can occur for example due to contact with the rock, due to incorrect passage of the rope due to involuntary hand pressure. Two openings also allow greater resistance than just one. Finally, it maintains its functionality over time and does not fear the presence of dust, earth, ice like other systems.
The lever-wire combination makes it easy to use even with gloves, and allows you to conveniently attach all types of devices (brakes).
