📎Let's know a bit more about CARABINER'S HISTORY Mountaineering has begun to be practiced in the 18th century in Mont Blanc but, at that time, the athletes did not adopt many techniques and they arrived at the summit just by walk.
It was at the end of the 19th century that they began to look for equipment to improve their climbs and climbs in the Alps. The first design of carabiner came in 1868, in a format that resembles what we have today, but it was made with steel and was labeled "hook." In 1897, a second patent appeared and was registered as "automatic hook". The item was also made of steel and weighed about 130g.
Although the patent came in 1868, the use of the carabiner came into the Napoleonic Wars and until the 20th century was much manufactured for use in armies.
The alpinists adopted the use of the equipment against the falls and after the years of 1930, the carabiners became aluminum, which we know today, thanks to the French alpinist, #AllainPierre
. We should thank him not just for innovating with the carabiners but for having created the climbing shoes, the idea of goose feathers in jackets and sleeping bags between many other climbing equipment elements
📍 A #carabiner
is a specialized type of shackle, a metal loop with a spring-loaded gate used to quickly and reversibly connect components, most notably in safety-critical systems. The word is a shortened form of Karabinerhaken (or also short Karabiner), a German phrase for a "spring hook" used by a carbine rifleman, or carabinier, to attach items to a belt or bandolier
