PARALOCK Separation carabiner

With a conventional paraglider karabiner it is hardly possible to unhook under load. However, in certain situations this can not only be useful, but can even save lives, for example when landing in flowing waters or in strong winds. In order to reduce the sink rate and protect the paraglider in tree landings, it is recommended - if possible - that the paraglider be disconnected after an emergency parachute opening, not only with steerable rescue systems.

Gleitschirm Karabiner



  • V-shaped harness chamber, suitable for a wide range of paraglider harnesses
  • Separate belt chambers prevent transverse loads
  • Drop-forged from Titanal
  • Replacement interval: 8 years without flight hour limitation, 5 years for tandem paraglider use
  • The PARALOCK weighs only 69 g at 2,800 DaN* breaking load
  • Weight: 69 g / pcs.

Gleitschirm KarabinerThe PARALOCK is a universal paraglider karabiner, which can be used in emergency situations even under load separation. In handling it has no disadvantages compared to conventional paraglider karabiners.

Once the paraglider risers are hooked in, the PARALOCK locks and secures itself automatically. It is opened by turning the release lever through 120° against spring force, whereby the lever can only be unlocked by pressing a specific button.


Gleitschirm KarabinerConventional paraglider karabiners have a maximum fatigue strength of 5 years in mono operation. If they are operated for longer, there is a risk of sudden material failure. For more details click here.

Fatigue strength in mono operation has been proven for the PARALOCK by fatigue tests carried out by a certified testing institute and material fatigue is therefore not an issue. For tandem operation the Fatigue strength 5 years, regardless of the number of flying hours.

Charly foot accelerator separation systems :

Die Befestigung der Gleitschirmtragegurte ist ähnlich wie beim konventionellen Karabiner. Der Quickpin-Verschluss verfügt über eine automatische Verriegelung. Er ist so gestaltet, dass zum Öffnen zwei unterschiedliche manuelle Handlungen erforderlich sind: Das Drücken des Entriegelungsknopfs und ein Ziehen des Bolzens in entgegengesetzter Richtung.
Das Lösen der Tragegurte nach der Landung ist beim Pin Lock einfacher als beim Schnappverschluss Karabiner.
Damit bei extremen Starkwindverhältnissen ein ordnungsgemäßes Befestigen der Tragegurte am Karabiner sichergestellt ist, muss der Gleitschirm vor dem Anlegen des Gurtzeugs am Karabiner befestigt werden. Das gilt für konventionelle Karabiner wie für Pin Lock.
Bei Beachtung der Betriebsanleitung können selbst im extremen Winterbetrieb Vereisungsprobleme zuverlässig vermieden werden.

A foot accelerator separation system is required to allow the main canopy to be completely separated after an emergency parachute opening. The foot accelerator separation systems work automatically after the karabiner is opened. Charly offers 3 foot accelerator separation systems.
