As with all SMC gear, the CrossOver carabiners also must pass the rigorous SMC standards at each point during their production. All the components in this carabiner are meticulously hand-finished after machining resulting in the smooth, free gate action that is the hallmark of all SMC carabiners. Additionally, each carabiner is 100% hand-inspected for gate action and other functional characteristics before leaving our factory.
Founded in 1967, the SMC brand is synonymous with impeccable product quality, technical expertise and the company’s long-standing commitment to insuring the safety of people using gear made by SMC.
