Omega PacificLite D Screw-Lock Carabiner

This ‘biner has quality on lock-down.

Many carabiners force you to choose between strength and weight, but the Omega Pacific Lite D Screw-Lock Carabiner offers a balance of both. Made with a unique cold-forging process, the Lite D Screw-Lock features the high-strength ratings you depend on when toying with the laws of gravity and physics without also featuring excess weight.

Effective and affordable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Have put these through the wringer on canyoneering routes and am really happy with their quality. Every dollar adds up -- I'm so glad I don't have to fork out a lot of money on simpler pieces of gear like this these days.

the first locking carabiner I ever used.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Its price makes it good entry level gear, that being said a lesson from personal experience to anyone getting into climbing I would say stick to boulders as you save for top quality gear. Your climbing gear should be top notch and inspected regularly. Though I've replaced my Omegas with Black Diamond carabiners, these still remain in my gear locker. When in bear country my wife and I loft our packs away from our sleeping area. All together there's probably 60 lbs of weight that need to be lifted skyward. Using three carabiners and some cordage you can rig up a block and tackle that make lifting a load easy. At 2 oz a pop it really costs you nothing to clip one to each of your ice axe loops and head out. Biners and cordage pair for a myriad of uses.


  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The second time I used this to clean a route, I got stuck at the chains. The screw-lock would not budge. I ended up hitting it with a rock to make it come loose. Would not buy or recommend again.

Great product

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

What more could you want from the screw-lock carabiner? It does what it is supposed to do. This is a great product. I use it climbing, hunting, backpacking.

cheap and solid

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

these are slowly replacing all my other lockers in my rack. cheap, good shape, strong and made well. What more could you ask for?

Heavy Duty Anchor Points

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a pair of the shiny ones to use on my top-rope anchors. For that they work great, but I haven't really used them for anything else.

The Good:

--Cheap and readily available, so when I wear them out lowering off of top rope I don't cry too hard buying replacements.

--A pair of them nest together super well, better than other lockers I've used in pairs.

The Bad:

--Heavy. I don't care so much, since I only haul them up the wall once.

Overall, my go-to anchor carabiner for setting top ropes. For other uses I prefer others.

Heavy duty biner.

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I bought 3 of these to use in a Z-drag setup, and also for rappelling. They are large (which is good) and easy to operate, even with cold hands. Well made, a solid biner. Just what I was looking for.

Heavy Duty

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Its a great carabiner, it holds a ton of weight, I put mine on a rope swing and it held 4 grown men all over 200 lbs, solid piece and super light weight!

Solid Carabiner

    These are super solid carabiners. I have the steel one which may be slightly different, but it is pretty much the same except stronger and a bit heavier. There are perfect to use for setting up an anchor to top rope. Very reliable biners for pretty cheap

    Solid Carabiner

    I like em'

      Not much to say, Omega makes good carabiners.

      Great biner for rafting!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Omegas are my go to carabiners for rafting. They are a bit heavier than other brands, but weight is not an issue on the river. I like these biners because they are durable, strong, and inexpensive.

      Works great

        I have several of these for climbing, one of which is more than several years old (it's the backup/extra now) and they all function flawlessly still. It's a cheap, simple carabiner that will get the job done. The shape does mean that you can't fit as much into the carabiner, but I haven't had an issue with it thus far.

        Cheap and Solid

          Simple and to the point. I was using mine on my Self Anchoring device for a while and have no complaints.


            If ya need a cheap, but great working simple locking carabiner, you've found it. This is the locking carabiner I've used as a go to for all my locking biner needs. Look no further.

            Have a few

              great product. Have a few, and they take a great beating.

              16mm / .630in opening

              55.6mm / 2.19in

              Its alright...

                What can I say, it's a good all around D shaped locking carabiner. It seams to work well in most situations. How ever it has a rather small gate clearance which can make it difficult to clip in some situations.

                Agreed with the small gate clearing, you can easy find some good others with wider clearing. Still great for what you get though. Its nice in the beginning until you gain preferences.
