Usage & Care Instructions

Instructions for Use: (1) This product may be used in conjunction with any appropriate item of personal protective equipment relevant to European Union Regulation 2016/425, and conforms to EN 12275 Mountaineering Equipment connectors. (2) Never allow carabiners to come into contact with an abrasive element, such as excessive rubbing on rocks, sand, etc. (3) Although the strength of Omega Pacific carabiners are not affected by weather, use care when employing them in wet or icy conditions. If carabiners are exposed to wet conditions, dry them thoroughly before storage, especially if they've been used near saltwater. This practice will help prevent premature corrosion. If used in icy conditions, ensure that ice and/or snow do not interfere with the correct operation of the carabiners. Occasionally, debris from ice and snow may accumulate in the nose, gate or hinge points of carabiners. Ensure this accumulation is removed for safe operation of the carabiners. 

Inspection Criteria: User safety is directly related to the integrity of your equipment. Prior to every use, it is the responsibility of the user to (1) inspect the carabiner to ensure no damage, deformation, corrosion, cracks, gouges, burrs, or other abnormalities exist to any component of the carabiner; (2) check to ensure gate self-closes from any open position, and can be opened from a closed position when under load; (3) ensure smooth fluid action of gate and locking mechanism, if equipped. All inspection results should be recorded in a personal inspection log to include a description of the model, manufacturer, lot code, purchase date, date of service entry, periodic inspection dates, problems, comments and name of the inspector.

Chemical and Temperature Considerations: (1) Avoid excessive heat (>100° C). (2) Avoid contact with electrolytes, acids, alkalis, seawater, or damp cement. 

Maintenance and Storage: (1) Clean with mild soapy water, dry and lubricate all moving parts. (2) Store in a clean, dry area.

Lifespan: When properly used and maintained, carabiners can be effective and useful for many years. If repeatedly subjected to adverse conditions, misuse or neglectful maintenance, however, a carabiner, like any piece of equipment, may require replacement in a very short period of time. Therefore, it is not practical to make a specific statement about the life span of an Omega Pacific carabiner. Instead, users
should regularly inspect their gear for damage. Retire and replace any equipment that no longer functions properly or displays damage which may prevent proper functioning. WHEN IN DOUBT, REPLACE IT.
