Carabiner Cleave

March 30, 2011

It was just another day and another experiment for engineering students at WKU.

Carabiners. D-shaped rings with a spring catch on one side. They are quite common in our everyday lives. You see small carabiners in stores, attached to reusable water bottles. Oftentimes, building or maintenance supervisors have them attached to their belts with massive amounts of keys. Or if you are a climber or caver, you are dependent upon carabiners to hold you and your gear.
