Petzl Oxan Karabiner – Screw-Lock (Steel)


Oxan is a high-strength steel karabiner designed for use in difficult environments. The oval, symmetrical shape allows optimal loading of the karabiner when setting up anchors or connecting to metal structures. It is available in two locking systems: automatic Triact-Lock system or manual Screw-Lock system. Oxan can be connected to the Captiv bar to favour positioning of the karabiner along the major axis, to limit the risk of it flipping and to keep it integrated with the device.

Also available in gold

Available in Triact-Lock
