Heavy-duty steel karabiners are used by arborists across the country as part of their rigging setup and operations when moving and lowering branches from trees. These karabiners can hold a variety of heavy weights and can easily be attached to lowering and rigging rope and any other equipment that may be needed when doing this operation. The rope connectors we stock here at Gustharts can accomplish the same as the connectors and can attach climbing equipment used for rigging together safely and securely.
