The name says a lot about the scope of application already: The HMS RONDO is a so called "HMS" carabiner.

The special shape of a "HMS" carabiner offers many advantages, for example: 

  • A wide gate opening makes rope handling very easy.
  • It offers a lot of space for knots of any type.

These advantages makes the carabiner the perfect choice for applications particularly with regard to:

The design of the HMS RONDO prevents the build up of sharp edges due to rope friction. Moreover, the round profile allows for fluid rope managment and an easy switching of the HMS knot.

The HMS design in combination with the innovative Slide Autolock gate maks this carabiner an unbelievalbly versatile. No matter if for climbing, rope rescue or industrial climbing – the fast and intuitive locking mechanism, the easy handling and tamper-proof construction make this carabiner a must-have for any rope application.

The HMS RONDO Slide Autolock is available in the colors green-azure, purple-black and all-black. In contrast to the green and purple carabiner, the all-black version is hard-coated.  Thanks to its double strength and higher base-hardness, this coating offers higher robustness and therefore a much longer lifetime of the carabiner and rope, which makes it perfect for frequent use. In addition, the all-black version comes with a uniqe identification number [ID], which makes traceability for qualified inspections easier.  

The HMS RONDO Slide Autolock with SELFIE twist protection, which keeps the carabiner in place on the belay loop, makes the HMS RONDO the ideal carabiner for the use on a harness. It is available in the colors green-azure and all-black. Again the all-black version is hard-coated for a longer lifetime of the carabiner and rope.

In line with our philosophy, the HMS RONDO Slide-Autolock is 100% made at our production site in Austria.
