The ORCA is a unique autolock sleeve/gate that can be set in the unlocked position. When you open the gate it is just like opening a non-locker, but the act of opening the gate "triggers" it and when the gate closes it will autolock just like a regular autolocking carabiner.
Why it’s good:
The ORCA can be unlocked on your rack for easy access without any of the gymnastics involved in opening a conventional autolock in tight situations. Then when you clip it in something it will lock. Or, if you put it in a bolt hanger, tripod head, etc., and hold the sleeve when closing it will remain unlocked. Then you can turn the biner over and install a rope, pulley, etc., just like it was a non-locker, but when the gate snaps shut it will be locked. When climbing something sketchy, do you ever want to use a locker for your first placement? Use it for the bottom biner in a quickdraw and you can simply put the rope in and it will lock when it closes.
Rock Exotica has refined the carabiner far beyond the offerings of other manufacturers. Their carabiners offer features you cannot get anywhere else:
- Highest inward gate/sleeve strength to reduce risk of something levering against the sleeve and breaking it open.
- Widest variety of lockers - check out their Manual Lock.
- Best Autolocks - they use a pull-down & twist sleeve which is intuitive & easy to use. Once people try it they never go back.
- Widest gate opening - they use a slightly angled gate opening that is ergonomic & opens farther.
USA Made - All manufacturing is done at their factory in Utah.
