Description

The DMM Rhino HMS carabiner tackles cross loading head on! The horn feature on the leading edge of the spine significantly reduces the possibility of cross loading with rigging, devices and pulleys by restricting the rotation of devices, whilst the clean nose design provides snag-free gate entry. The smooth and robust top bar is contrasted by our signature I-Beam construction on the non-rope bearing surfaces.

HMS for space and rigging
HMS connectors are pear-shaped and often have similar characteristics to ovals in how they deal with loaded components, i.e. they also allow devices and connectors to self-centre. Moreover, the extended basket allows for additional component connection. Knots in a system such as an Italian hitch can rotate easily between taking in and paying out (even with larger diameter ropes). In general, HMS connectors are slightly oversized to accommodate the added volume of bigger ropes and to feel secure in a gloved hand.

Keylock clean nose for snag free connection

DMM’s patented ‘Taperlock’ closing mechanism increases gate push-in and cross gate strength using a special flared profile on the nose of the carabiner, as well as allowing a snag free connection for your ropes, slings and devices.

Pronounced horn and flat base encourage optimal loading

The top of the Rhino’s spine prevents assisted braking devices and rope controllers from twisting around the spine and cross-loading the carabiner. The Rhino’s flat base helps it sit in the belay loop, and works with the horn to help the Rhino orientate correctly.

Wide, full radius basket provides a rope and device friendly operation
