    Random sample destructive testing on the last batch of carabiners we received from our supplier. They all tested above the labeled specs. Even though we have test results from our supplier, I'm always wanting to verify :)

    Jeffe, I see several different types of failures. Which one was the most consistent?

    You're seeing three different tests: Major axis (gate closed), Major Axis (gate opened) and Minor Axis

    What was an average breaking point, since they tested better than their rated? It's gotta be thousands.
