Some carabiners have D-shaped bodies, others are HMS-shaped or pear-shaped. In general, D-shaped carabiners are more common for climbing, as they have greater strength than other types of carabiners. HMS-shaped and pear-shaped carabiners are more common in caving and working at height.
The finger:The finger of the carabiner is the part that opens to allow the rope or harness to be inserted. Typically, carabiners have a spring-loaded finger, which opens when you press a small button located on the top of the carabiner. However, there are also carabiners with a screw finger, which must be unscrewed manually to open the carabiner.

The carabiner is suitable for use in the construction and industrial sectors. This means that it has been designed to withstand high loads and to be used in situations where safety is paramount.
The weight of the carabiner is 0.34kg, making it light and easy to carry. Lightness is especially important in situations where the user has to carry a large amount of equipment.
