These are classic all round wire gate karabiners with a lightweight I Beam construction. DD Hammocks recommend using these as part of your lightweight hammock suspension system.
DD Hammocks says:
These light and super-strong karabiners, made by UK climbing specialists DMM, are perfect for your hammock suspension system. In fact, they can be safely and securely put to a whole host of camping uses.
Don't fancy untying knots? Use with our Tree Huggers and you'll be able to unclip your hammock from trees very quickly. The design of these karabiners means they also act as a drip-stop, preventing water running down towards your hammock from your suspension cord. Secure quick-release latches mean you can expect to set up your gear with them in no time.
These ultra light, high strength, climbing grade karabiners made by DMM are a really useful addition to the hammock set-up. They look like the Spectre 2, but don't hold me to that. DD Hammocks suggest that by attaching one to the webbing at either end of your hammock, they act as drip lines, preventing water running down the webbing onto the hammock in heavy rain.
They also allow you to quickly unclip/clip up your hammmock if space is needed under your tarp during the day etc. And of course, they make it quicker to set-up/pack up your hammock.
If your not using it with a hammock, there are plenty of other uses for high strength karabiners.
