Hi @ndfwHandyman - Thanks for reaching out! Like @hikermor said, spring snap hook is another name for carabiner. The term is most often used for smaller carabiners that are used in construction. If you’re planning to climb, it’s important to use climbing-specific gear that meets all of the safety requirements. Is there a piece in particular that you already have or are looking to buy? Let us know if you’d like suggestions and we can help!
