Finsterwalder Quick Release Carabiner (Pair)


The Charly Finsterwalder separation carabiner is used whenever a reliable connection and if necessary a rapid separation also under load is important. It is suitable for the safe attachment of loads – in particular persons – and for outdoor use.

It has proven itself especially during police helicopter missions, the military, and the mountain rescue service.

In paragliding, the Quick-Out is used for the separation of the glider when a steerable rescue system is deployed.

By simultaneously pushing both release buttons, pilot and aircraft are separated effortlessly. In safety trainings, the separation of the glider after a rescue chute deployment turned out to be advantageous.

Besides the rescue options in case of emergency landings in water, trees, and high winds, the Quick-Out also offers handling advantages compared to conventional carabiners.
