Finsterwalder PARALOCK 3 Separating Quick-Out Carabiner


Universal quick-release paragliding carabiner

The next-generation paragliding carabiner offers extra safety in dangerous situations: Its quick-release function prevents dangerous interactions between the reserve and the paraglider and is useful for emergency water landings and high wind conditions on the ground.

The PARALOCK 3 has a new patented locking system that is easy and safe to operate. Moreover, the swivel lever can be additionally blocked if required.

Unlike conventional paragliding carabiners, the PARALOCK 3 lock is form-fit, so the dynamic stress relevant to material fatigue in flight is only a fraction.

It has survived the fatigue test of 2.000 load changes at 525 DaN top load and then 5 million load changes at 240,5 DaN at an accredited materials testing institute without damage. This is equivalent to 5 years of tandem operation with unlimited flight hours. The maximum recommended service life for mono paragliding use is 8 years, with no risk of material fatigue even with extended use.
