SMC Force Series TAC-D

The TAC-D – Strong, Low Vis and Lightweight

The TAC-D from SMC is certainly a neat little package. At 31kN, it is one of the strongest aluminium carabiners available and yet, it weighs just 74g. That’s just the start though, because the real selling point is the matt green finish designed to reduce shine and glare. This finish makes the SMC TAC-D the ideal candidate for use in military, law enforcement and even stage rigging applications.

Further Features of the SMC Force Series TAC-D include:-
  • The classic D shape which carries loads towards the stronger, non-gated side
  • Smooth, rounded inside surfaces which give great interface with ropes and webbing
  • A generous gate opening of 25mm
  • Snag free gate opening.
  • Made in the USA.
The Best Thing About the TAC-D

We said it up front, it’s the finish. The Force TAC-D has been finished with a unique matte anodisation which gives the carabiner a nice feel in your hand and a clean, individual look. It’s obviously ideal for tactical applications, but we can see ourselves using these guys for film and television rigging as well.


Please note that adequate training and judgment are needed to reduce the risks inherent in the use of this equipment. It is the responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that the user is adequately and competently trained in the use of this product. We strongly advise that you do not use any carabiner without first undertaking appropriate training.
