The Kinetic – a Two Stage Auto Lock


The SMC Kinetic Twist Lock is an ideal connector for all disciplines of working at heights or work rescue. Lightweight and with an enhanced modified D shape that provides for a larger gate opening (2.5cm), the SMC Kinetic is a great option for those working (or playing) at heights all day.

Features of the SMC Kinetic Twist Lock include:-

  • A key-lock nose to help prevent snagging.
  • Locking sleeves that engage on the gate, not on the frame, resulting in greater reliability and less jamming.
  • The locking sleeves also allow the operator to operate while under load if necessary.
  • A two stage twist lock which is designed to be easily opened with one hand, with or without gloves.
  • Recessed knurls and a firm spring ensuring that it is less likely that gear will cause the Kinetic’s gate to inadvertently open.
  • That they are made in the USA.
  • Available in orange, blue and black.

As with all SMC carabiners, the SMC Kinetics are 100% visually and physically inspected prior to leaving SMC. It is SMC’s attention to detail and precision craftsmanship that guarantees you receive the highest level of quality, value and flawless performance ensuring your carabiners are amongst the finest you can buy anywhere in the world.
