Steel Carabiners have traditionally provided the connecting link for every rescue system. Recently, the introduction of NFPA G rated aluminum rescue carabiners have allowed rescuers to lighten their load while maintaining the required certifications.

Petzl updated their aluminum carabiner line and the excellent Petzl AM'd carabiner is now rated for NFPA T applications. I urge you to give these excellent carabiners a look.
