  • Exploring Carabiner Add-Ons: Straps Edition

    Like the "Secret Menu Hacks" at Chipotle--just because you don't see something on a product page it doesn't mean that it isn't available if you ask. And our secret ingredient that you can add to any order is straps. Any size and any shape of carabiner we carry can be upgraded with one of our strap options. So then, what exactly are the different kinds of straps we carry?

     

    Standard Strap

    The standard strap is just the essentials. All of our straps are crafted from black woven nylon as the base. With the standard strap you get a loop on one end to attach to the carabiner and a split key ring on the other end to hold your keys. Simple, functional, convenient. The standard strap adds some distance between your keys and carabiner so that they rest better when clipped to a belt or bag.

     

    Compass Strap

    Our compass strap is essentially the standard strap, but with the added benefit of a directional compass. It has the same nylon base with split key ring attachment and includes a rubber loop mounted compass. These look very cool when paired with our camouflage carabiners and are great for outdoor enthusiasts. Not into camo? How about a boat shape carabiner--boats need navigation too.

     

    Bottle Holder Strap

    Again we start with a woven black nylon strap. This time, however, instead of a metal split key ring these have a rubber loop. The loop has a pull tab for easy handling and is designed to securely hold a drink bottle with a standard sized neck (opening size is 1-inch diameter). The length of nylon on the bottle holder straps is slightly shorter and a little wider than the standard strap. Liquids are heavy! (This ingredient is so secret that you won't find it on any of the product pages. You have to ask, don't be shy!)

     

    Custom PVC Strap

    Undoubtedly the most spectacular and elaborate of our straps are the customized PVC straps. It's like the standard nylon strap, but with the addition of a custom molded emblem woven to the strap. Use up to 5 colors to create your logo/artwork on the 1.5" x .625" PVC emblem. The molded emblems can be used for a texted three-dimensional relief of your artwork. They are a real stunner. Add them to any carabiner order, or get them by themselves.

    Now you know about one of our secret-but-not-so-secret carabiner menu hacks. So will you be adding any straps to your next order?

  • All About The Fonts

    As the proliferation of digital devices continues its exponential growth, more and more people are becoming aware of the wide variety of typefaces and their use. And it is no longer the case in which people who could readily identify more than one font were limited to sign makers and typesetters.

    Computer word processing programs were the introduction for many people to the wide world of font selection. Depending on your age, if you were asked about the first font that you could name it would probably be Times New Roman--the default selection in Microsoft Word. Now, so many of the applications and programs that are used daily offer dozens of font choices. It's natural, then, that many people in the digital age have become aware of the variety of typefaces available and how they can convey different moods and meanings from each other.

    While it's still mainly graphic designers who care about kerning and leading and so on, it is easy for anyone to see the difference between a delicate script font and a bold sans serif font. The script could connote elegance for a formal affair, and the sans serif might be used in a line of advertising as a clean and simple way to convey information. Half of the fun in designing something with letters is scrolling through the different fonts to find one that is just the right fit for the message.

    Maybe you have found the perfect font for your custom engraving--one that matches your brand or reflects the tone of your event. Let us know about it. We have access to hundreds of fonts that we can use and can often acquire new fonts that would match one you've selected. Be aware that some fonts may not engrave well, especially if they contain fine detail or very thin lines. And if you're not sure--ask! Our artists can help you achieve a design that will result in an attractive final engraving.

  • 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.)

  • 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.
