AustriAlpin HMS RONDO Slide Autolock


The HMS RONDO is ideally suited for use with canyoning descenders. The smooth round shape provides even friction and prevents the formation of sharp edges.

The Slide Autolock claims to be the fastest carabiner locking mechanism in the world. The embedded brass slider is easy to operate, even while wearing gloves, yet almost impossible to accidentally open.

The fully rounded body of the AustriAlpin HMS RONDO Slide Autolock allows smooth rope movement, even friction, and prevents the creation of sharp edges, providing a longer lifespan.

The innovative Slide Autolock mechanism is extremely easy to open — simply press the embedded brass slider — yet is nearly impossible to open unintentionally. Once released the gate automatically snaps shut and securely locks.

Note: The nose of HMS RONDO is thicker than some other carabiners and can require a firm push and some wiggling when installing a descender with a rubber o-ring.

It will fit the following descenders: Critr, Sqwurel, Element, Pivot, Hoodoo, ATS, Hannibal, Hydrobot and MiniEight. It does not fit the Oka.

AustriAlpin recommends its use with the No.Mad, however this is a particularly tight fit and does require a firm push and wiggling to get on. Once connected it is extremely secure.

Key advantages:

  • round profile for smooth rope movement and longer lifespan
  • gate is fast and easy to open, even wearing gloves
  • autolock gate snaps shut and securely locks
