SubjectParaglider harness, carabiner for paragliding harnesses, Sup`Air twistlock aluminium carabiner for 40mm webbing

Since 1992 more than 300.000 pieces of the Sup`Air aluminium twistlock carabiner for 40 mm webbing are beeing used.

There are no accidents known because of malfunction of this carabiner. It is a known fact however, that aluminium carabiners have a limited life time. Nobody is able to tell exactly how long the life time of aluminium carabiners is. Sup`Air and Aerosport International recommend to exchange aluminium carabiners after 5 years or 500 hrs. of flying time.

Aerosport International is offering different Sup`Air carabiners or connection elements as replacement.
