Beal Be Smith Captive
The Beal Be Smith Captive is a hard-wearing steel asymmetric carabiner for use as an anchor 'biner or in-situ carabiner at the crux. These types of carabiners often experience high levels of wear as they are subjected to repeated falls and abseils, so steel is a much more durable choice than aluminium. The wire gate is exactly the same as is used on a normal carabiner for ease of use. In addition, a removable captive pin can be removed with an Allen key 1.5mm this holds a sling in place to prevent the karabiner from inverting.
|MAJOR AXIS STRENGTH||26 kN|
|MINOR AXIS STRENGTH||8 kN|
|OPEN GATE STRENGTH||12 kN|
• High wear resistance
• Impossible for carabiner to invert in an express sling
• Easy to clip

Pretty heavy but very sturdy carabiner. Bought it for the hard work and also in case I have to leave some gear on an anchor. Wouldnt hurt for that low price, although I like it for its robustness.
Bought this just for a general use knock-about 'biner, has served me well so far. Sturdy bit of gear- really cheap too, and hard wearing. Would recommend.
