Whatever we do at DMM, we always make sure that we do it well. Even our super light XSRE accessory carabiner is a cut above the rest. Not only does it look the business, it also comes with the distinctive hallmarks of quality and engineering precision that you would expect from a DMM carabiner.
The XSRE was developed for use in the tree care industry to carry tools, tool bags and chainsaws. The carabiner needed to be small enough to stay out of the way whilst having a keylock nose for piercing ropes.
Even though it is not for use in a safety system we just couldn't help ourselves. In the classic DMM style, we had to make it as strong and light as we possibly could!
The XSRE is very neat and light – the hot forged I-Beam construction allows us to keep the weight down to a feather-like 8.1g, while achieving a strength rating of 4kN.
The oval shape and plain gate gives snag free racking. The keylock nose also reduces the chance of snagging and aids rope piercing for arborists.
It is available in a range of eye-catching anodised colours, including blue, light blue, green, gold, red, and purple, allowing you to colour match and coordinate as you see fit.
The XSRE is the most useful high performance accessory carabiner on the market. There are hundreds of potential applications for this stylish piece of kit – we’re sure you can think of a few too.
NB. The XSRE is an accessory carabiner and should not be used for climbing or as Personal Protective Equipment.
