When you think of a carabiner you likely are picturing that little piece of life saving equipment. It’s small, lightweight and inexpensive… yet can save our lives time and time again. Carabiners are widely used in sports requiring ropework, such as rock climbing, slacklining, caving, and canyoning. But they can also be used in so many different outdoor activities (attaching your water bottle to a backpack while hiking) and situations around the house.
In today’s post let’s take a look at 5 Unique Uses For a Carabiner:
