Product Description

OXAN is a high-strength steel carabiner designed for use in difficult environments. The oval, symmetrical shape allows optimal loading of the carabiner when setting up anchors or connecting to metal structures. It is available in two locking systems: automatic TRIACT-LOCK system or manual SCREW-LOCK system. OXAN TRIACT-LOCK is available in European or international versions. OXAN can be connected to the CAPTIV bar to favor positioning of the carabiner along the major axis, to limit the risk of it flipping and to keep it integrated with the device.

This carabiner was bought to go with my Petzl asap. It locked in well and made a safe anchor point for my harness. Strong latch and some what of a narrow minor axis compared to my other carabiners of a different brand.
  • Strong - tough - latch is secure in all situations. Fit well for my application.
  • Minor axis or throat was smaller than anticipated for my ASAP. It works great just gets caught more so than my other ones. They are older so perhaps different style. The gate is secure but I find it more difficult to open one handed than my Kongs. I always seem to try to open it the wrong way..no issue with my other ones. Just new I guess.
