Carabiner, Karabiner or Snap Hook
A carabiner or karabiner is a metal loop used to quickly and reversibly connect components in safety-critical systems and are used on ALL Bungee Trampolines.
We offer two different types of locking systems on the types we sell but will always recommend the screw lock types are used for Bungee Trampolines
Have a threaded sleeve over the gate which must be engaged and disengaged manually. They have fewer moving parts than spring-loaded mechanisms, are less prone to malfunctioning due to contamination or component fatigue, easier to employ one-handed. They, however, require more total effort and are more time-consuming than twist-lock.
Have a security sleeve which must be manually rotated to disengage, but which springs closed automatically upon release. They offer the advantage of re-engaging without additional user input, but being spring-loaded are prone to both spring fatigue and their more complex mechanisms becoming balky from dirt, ice, or other contamination. They are also difficult to engage one-handed and with gloves on.
