Hypnos from Singing Rock is an excellent product at a great price. Hypnos is a light and compact HMS Karabiner used to connect your harness to a belay bug, but is equally at home being used with a münter hitch. For better gear management the gates are in different colours. Hypnos is beautifully anodized while the screw gate prevents from accidental gate opening. The “nose” of the carabiners is shaped in an ergonomic design to avoid gear getting trapped on it. The pear shape and large inner dimensions, means that you can tie off several ropes into the Krab, the Hypnos has many uses particularly in trad climbing.
The Singing Rock Hypnos has a simple and ingenious Key-lock system, solving the problems associated with the traditional design of Karabiners.
It eliminates any risk of ropes or tapes becoming entangled in the lever or in the Karabiner shell when it is being connected or released.
Neither the lever, which is completely cylindrical, nor the shell has any sharp edges.
Ropes and slings do not, therefore, come into contact with any cutting edges.
