How carabiners are made. Non-locking carabiners have a sprung swinging gate that can be opened to insert or remove a rope, webbing sling, or other climbing hardware. The gate snaps shut under the spring's pressure. Mountaineers also frequently use a short sling to connect two non-locking carabiners to each other, creating a quickdraw. The gate used depends on the use and preference of the user.
