  • Exciting Carabiner Trivia

    We all know and love carabiners for their multi-functional utility and ubiquitous appeal. But what do we really know about carabiners themselves? Let's take a dive into the world of carabiners to discover more information about their origins and how they became the beloved apparatus that they are today.

    While we here at Wholesale-Carabiners.com specialize in supplying bulk quantities of custom engraved carabiners for use as keychains and promotional purposes, they actually have a more diverse history of applications. The name derives from the German term for "spring hook" which is Karabinerhaken. Further supplementing the etymology of "carabiner" is that the karabinerhaken were used during the Napoleonic Wars (1803–1815) by the carbine riflemen, aka "carabiniers" to attach items to their belts; with carabinier, itself, being a French term.

    Now, carabiners are used for everything from climbing, to scuba diving, to hot air-ballooning. While there are different shapes and styles of carabiner, they are all characterized by the swinging spring gate. Perhaps you've seen a similar item where instead of a latch there is a threaded sleeve to open and close the hook. These are actually called maillons.

    They Did The Math

    How many carabiners would it take laid end to end to circle the earth? A lot. Here are the figures calculated for our 3 most popular carabiner sizes:

    50mm - It would take approximately 801,500,000 of our smallest carabiner size to go around the earth. That's nearly three times the population of Brazil!

    60mm - Only slightly larger in size, it would take about 667,916,667 of this size carabiner to engulf the circumference of our fair blue planet.

    80mm - This is our largest size of carabiner and it would take a measly 500,937,500 end-to-end to make a trip around the globe. Can you imagine the savings you could achieve by ordering in that quantity? (Please don't order that many, though. It would probably take over half a century of non-stop engraving to fulfill your order)

    Strength Training

    Remember the hit 1995 movie "Operation Dumbo Drop" starring Danny Glover?

    The American National Standards Institution has set a standard for load bearing carabiners to support a static weight of 5,000 lbs in a fall protection system. Do you know what weighs, on average, 5,000 pounds? An adult male Asian Elephant.

    (Note: Our carabiners are for keychains and giveaways. They are not for weight critical applications and to not adhere to the ANSI standards mentioned above.)

  • Engraving Tip: Take Advantage of Sequential Numbering

    Wholesale-Carabiners Offers Sequential Numbering Engraving

    Did you know that in addition to your logo or custom message, we can also engrave sequential numbers on your item? This is useful for people who want to track or serialize things. For instance, if you run an apartment complex you may want to give a unique identifier to each resident's dog to make sure they are a registered pet on the premises. Our bone shaped dog tags are great for this. Or perhaps you work in an industrial environment and want to identify machinery for routine safety maintenance. Check out our medallion tags for this use.

    Choose any starting number, whether you begin with 1 or 8392091748. Although, one caveat is  that the increments must increase evenly by 1 as we cannot randomize numbers or use a specific set of numbers from a list. Use a number only, or add it to existing text or images. Please note that we do charge an additional setup fee and per item fee for sequential numbered engraving. These fees can vary based on your order, so please speak with one of our representatives to receive an accurate quote.

  • Set Your Brand Apart With Camouflage Carabiners


    Camouflage is a term that originates from the French for "to disguise or conceal." So it's ironic then that you would consider a camouflage pattern to help your brand stand out, isn't it? Though, ever since the pattern was co-opted for fashion and other decoration it has become en vogue to use camouflage as a design statement rather than a concealment. Evocative mainly of the military and hunting, camouflage patterning has come to represent a lifestyle of strength and endurance. And frankly, it just looks cool.

    That's where these carabiners boost your brand. You're associating your name with the same feelings of coolness and strength. Engrave your business name on one side and your contact information on the other side. Our camouflage carabiners are great for outdoor sporting brands, paintball battlegrounds, youth development programs, and so much more.

    Available as carabiners only or add a compass strap for even greater utility. The camouflage pattern covers the entire carabiner, including the swing gate, for a really sharp overall look and are constructed of strong lightweight aluminum for a premium feel.

    Order your camo carabiners today. Visit the product page here or call or email.

  • A Carabiner Shaped Like A House

    It's just a box with a triangle on top in its most reduced form. Add a chimney and you have an instantly recognizable and unmistakable shape. It's so simple that a kindergarten student can make a drawing that you would identify as a house. Yet for its simplicity, it is also a powerful symbol. The house shape is such a loaded icon. For some it represents comfort and security, a sense of belonging. For others it might represent a stressful financial responsibility or withering nostalgia.

    Buying a house is a major life event. But you know what? Buying 250 house-shaped carabiners is pretty cool too. Engrave each house carabiner with a message that will never fade. For instance, if you're a realtor you could have your name and phone number engraved on one side and a positive message on the reverse like "Welcome Home!" Then you could hand these out to your clients as you help them navigate the home buying experience.

    Or maybe you are a general contractor looking to expand your customer base. Your website would make a beautiful laser engraving on this house shaped carabiner. Keep a bucket of them in your truck so that you're always ready to let a new customer know about your business.

    We offer four vibrant colors of house carabiner. Pick your favorite. Mix and match. It's up to you! With one and two sided engraving available you also have the option to add split ring key rings to your order. Order more and save. Our already low wholesale prices get even lower when you order in bulk. Just imagine what you could do with 1,000 house shaped carabiners.

  • Happy President’s Day from Wholesale-Carabiners!

    wholesale-carabiners-presidents-day-dog-tags

    Happy President’s Day from Wholesale-Carabiners! President’s Day began as a federal holiday observing the birthday of our first US President, George Washington. It is now generally recognized as an occasion to recognize and remember all of the Presidents of the United States.

    Presidential Trivia

    • --It’s a common misconception that George Washington had wooden teeth. He did have false teeth but they were made of differing materials including ivory, gold, lead, and even the teeth of animals.
    • --Andrew Jackson had a parrot that would often say curse words.
    • --James Buchanan was the only president to never marry. He was a bachelor his entire life.
    • --Abraham Lincoln attended seances at the White House
    • --Benjamin Harrison was the president when electricity was first installed in the White House. He was so scared of being electrocuted, he refused to touch any of the light switches.
    • --Warren Harding had the biggest shoe size of all the presidents--size 14.
    • --Bill Clinton has two Grammy Awards.

     

    History is full of amazing facts. And did you know that the Washington Monument is the tallest stone structure and also tallest obelisk, standing at 555 ft and 5-⅛ inches. The apex of the monument is solid aluminum; which at the time of construction was a metal as rare and valuable as silver.  

    Fortunately for us now, aluminum is an abundant and affordable resource. Which is great, because we can offer you low wholesale pricing on all of our custom engraved aluminum carabiners, bottle openers, and dog tags. For instance, you can order 250 custom engraved 60mm carabiners for only $155, which is just $0.66 each! These items and more are a fantastic way to promote your brand and build a strong, loyal customer base. And we engrave our products right here in the USA.
