HALO Carabiner by Ti2 Design

Carabiners are a dime a dozen – so actually being able to turn out something that is both tough, well designed, and still stands out is a real accomplishment. Ti2 Designs, a metalworking company based out of Pear City, Hawaii has accomplished exactly that with their HALO carabiner.

The result of a collaboration with Mike Bond and Jesper Voxnaes, this piece built for everyday carry took its inspiration from the dangerous High Altitude Low Opening parachuting jumps conducted by the military. Just like those jumps, these designers saw their project as a ‘well planned and coordinated feat’ using CAD work, rigorous prototyping, and communication. An angular and aggressive looking design on the carabiner makes for an attractive build that is only made that much better by the use of high grade metals. You can get this thing made from grade 5 titanium (which boasts a ultimate tensile strength of 138,000psi at half the weight of steel), Tellurium copper, Bronze 614, and even Zirconium. Along with being able to hold your keys this can act as a box opener, a hex drive, and a bottle opener. Prices start at $69. [Purchase]
