Qlipter, the Swiss Army Knife of Carabiners

Carabiners, frequently used by campers and hikers, have rarely been improved upon or reinvented – until now, that is. Enter the Qlipter, a carabiner so awesome they had to give it a new name. This carabiner has a secret weapon, a built-in wide hook that folds out and can rotate 360 degrees. The end of this hook has a rubber end cap to give you some more grip. Also, embedded in the rubber end cap is a magnet, which holds the hook securely in place when not in use.

The Qlipter is definitely not one of those cheaply made sorry excuses for carabiners that you can find in a jar at a hardware store checkout counter for 99 cents. The Qlipter is made out of aircraft grade aluminum alloy capable of handling up to 50 pounds of inert, non-human weight. It works great for hanging up backpacks, food bags, lanterns, toiletry bags, bicycles, solar shower water bags, suitcases, diaper bags, water bottles, hiking boots, or for hanging gear off your backpack or any other countless creative uses yet to be thought up.

Weighing in at approximately only 2 ounces, the Qlipter definitely won’t bog you down with its minimal weight. The size of the Qlipter is as follows: 3 5/16 inches wide, 4 5/16 inches long when closed, and 7 1/8 inches long when opened.

In my testing, I found the Qlipter to be well built, highly effective, and very adaptable for a wide variety of scenarios. Its only limitations being its weight restriction and the users imagination on ways to implement this clever device. If you are looking to get more use out of your next carabiner purchase, then I highly recommend you check out the Qlipter. It’s pretty dang cool!
