What Is A D Ring?
A D Ring is a carabiner which is shaped like a letter D as the name implies. Carabiners are shackles that are similar to climbing hooks and can be used to connect various components of a rigging system. The D-Ring is the most commonly used shape of carabiner in climbing applications, because its asymmetrical shape provides the strongest axis out of all carabiner shapes. Most of our Safety Straps are available with or without a D strings included.
Who Are Safe-T-Strap?
Safe-T-Strap are an Ontario based company, most known for the fact that they invented the first anchor straps designed specifically for the construction industry. The company was established in 1994 and they test all of their equipment rigorously in house.

What Materials Are Your Safety Straps Made Of?

This material is especially ideal for shock absorption as its stretch/elasticity can double the stretch of polyester. While nylon is not completely water-resistant, its break strength remains relatively high when it gets wet when compared to many other materials.
