Cara-what?

Mountaineering Bear

An easy and reliable gadget to keep keys safe and in one place, our carabiner has the same gate mechanism as the heavy-duty ones used for mountain climbing and ropes safety. Ours aren’t designed for climbing, but this lesson plan explores the mountaineering origins of carabiners and the pillar of Responsibility.
