Where to buy cheap nasty carabiners?
10:48:38 AM
I'm trying to find about 15 really cheap ($5 or less) carabiners to hang some stuff in my junk room.

I'd like the physical size to be similar to a climbing one, but only has to hold about 10-15kg max weight. The Aldi ones are ok but still a bit expensive ( & don't really need the locking screw.

Bunnings had something but I know I can find cheaper. Google/Shopbot/etc didn't seem to help much.

Any ideas? Oh, I'm in inner Melbourne.

I've got a Kong accessory biner, rated to 600kg, that I bought from Snowgum for a fiver I think.

I've got a bunch of retired (read: upgraded) biners in a box somewhere. Not sure how many. Mostly Chouinard Light D and some Simond.
Work in the city, live in Hawthorn & you could pick them up over the weekend.

I have a fair number of them that I use in aid climbing...
You must have got yours a long time ago then, as I am pretty sure they are more expensive than that now. I have seen them for more like $12 or $13 in some stores!
If anyone intends getting these, check the gate action on the individual items carefully, as their quality control seemed to be 'off' for a bit, some time ago.
