Finsterwalders separation karabiner 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 helicopter missions of the police, 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 karabiners.
Ouick Out Features:
- Breaking load: 4.000 DaN*, 2.000 DaN* individually tested
- No gate play, thus fatigue endurable with unlimited hours of usage for 150 DaN* hauled load!
- Double-button locking with multiple safety steps
- Replacement interval: 8 years, unlimited hours of usage
- Housing drop-forged from Titanal, insert made from high-strength aluminium alloy 7075 T6
- Weight: 200 g/pc.
- * 1 DaN (dekanewton) = 10 newton ≈ 1 kg
Quick Out Karabiner with Speedbars
Usage at paragliders with a speedsystem is permitted only in combination with a patent SHAKLE SEPARATION SYSTEM or a BRUMMEL HOOK SEPARATION SYSTEM. The Finsterwalder QUICK-OUT has to be installed according to the directions of the harness manufacturer and requires regular care. It has to be cleaned after contact with aggressive media (e.g. sea water) or with sand and dust because the buttons might jam otherwise. In case of humidity in combination with temperatures below freezing, there is a danger of icing. If the buttons are blocked, the carabiner can not be securely locked anymore. An improper locking of the carabiner is optically recognizable. Swapping the QUICK-OUT release buttons is dangerous to life. In our instruction manual, we hence point out that the release button located on the opposite side of the installation slot must not be dismounted when attaching the carabiner to the harness. It may only be removed for cleaning purposes after the carabiner had been exposed to salt water. However, to prevent swapping the release buttons, only one button at a time may be dismounted.
One QUICK-OUT carabiner (which is attached to the harness) can be used in combination with several QUICK-OUT inserts (which are attached to the aircrafts). Extra QUICK-OUT INSERTS should be ordered together with the QUICK-OUT housing so that the smooth functioning of housing and insert can be tested by the manufacturer.
Steel is good ?
The fatigue endurance of carabiners is not a question of material but a question of design! In dynamic fatigue tests, some aluminum carabiners exhibited substantially higher fatigue endurance levels than steel carabiners. Although stainless steel is generally more fatigue endurable, harder and more resistant to corrosion, the difference in strength can easily be outweighed by a larger width of the aluminum component. Due to the better strength-to-weight ratio, high-quality aluminum alloys are the standard in aircraft construction.
