Hey, Edinburgh Uni Canoe Club are looking to buy some used snap on carabiner's for towing/rescuing boats on the river.

We are not looking for top quality Carab's just some that are past their best but still structurally sound enough to tow boats on a river. We are looking to pay around 5 per carabiner.

Let me know if your interested, Thanks

Snapgates or screwgates? I've got a fair few of the former I don't need anymore.

In reply to scotteucc: snap gates would be best, but either would do. how many would you be interested in selling?

For second hand krabs, I'd be looking at closer to 2-3 each. Even really old krabs will be very strong still.

In light of recent revelations would anyone be interested in selling second hand karbs for 2-3?
