For what purpose should I use Carabiners ?

1. Increased safty for mounting the cloth and grip braids

For the "normal use" S-hooks are ideal.
But if you want to expand your movements with acrobatic elements, it might be safer to replace the S-hooks by » carabiners.
With S-hooks I can change the height slightly faster than with carbiners. But it needs some attention when setting up, to ensure that they are seated properly in the loops.
If children move with the set, I take » carabiners, because then I know that they are securely placed all time.
2. Quickly setup adjustment loops
Additional » carabiners are the perfect solution for quickly attaching and detaching adjustment straps to and from your anchors.
3. Mounting the loops (feet/hands)
With » carabiners the fabric loops can be mounted at different heights into the adjustment straps or even into the perforated ropes of the long handles.

The » carabiners in our shop have a longitudinal fracture load of 26 kN, which corresponds to 2600 kg weight. They are made in the Czech Republic by Ocun for mountaineering.

You can order carabiners with » wire hook
or with » screw lock for even improved security.
