The Shadow Screwgate is based on the Shadow back with an extended top bar to allow the locking version to have more room for knots and slings. Thus although it shares the same name as the Shadow straight and bent gate carabiners it has it's own tooling. The barrel on the gate is machined from premium 7075 alloy to give it massive push-in strength. There is no current standard for this test, but at DMM we don't build our carabiners to meet standards; we build our kit as well as we can, eliminate weaknesses and help push the standards forward. The shadow has a keylock nose and is fully anodised for long term protection against the elements. The gate/barrel/nose intersection is designed and manufactured so that the barrel will not jam shut in the closed position if the carabiner is tightened under load. Specifications: Weight 51g. Strength (gate closed): 24 kN. Strength (gate open): 9kN. Strength (minor axis): 7kN. Gate opening: 18mm. Rope bearing surface width: 9.5mm.
