The DMM Shadow HMS Locksafe is a mid to large sized HMS carabiner, with a surprisingly lightweight construction - perfect for belaying. With a short gate, to maximise gate opening, and deep/wide top basket, the DMM Shadow can easily handle three clove hitches (<9.5mm rope), also making it a superb rigging carabiner.
The Locksafe gate—which requires three specific movements to open—locks automatically, reducing the chance of human error.
The Shadow HMS is the successor to DMM's longstanding 25kN Boa, offering the same big-basket versatility in a stronger (main axis locked), slightly more compact and lightweight package.
