The Falcon AL is a 3-stage, compact pear-shaped carabiner. Crafted from high strength 7075-T6 aluminum, the Falcon is strong, lightweight and great as a belay carabiner. The Talon feature is a wire gate closure that helps keep the carabiner in proper orientation on your harness.
Autolocking or selflocking carabiners have a spring-loaded barrel that closes over the gate when released. This type of locking carabiner offers a little more security in the system over screwgate carabiners, but all carabiners should be second checked.
