Our separation karabiner is used whenever a reliable connection and if necessary a rapid separation also under load is important. It is suitable for the safe attachment of loads â€“ in particular persons â€“ and for outdoor use.
It has proven itself especially during helicopter missions of the police, the military, and the mountain rescue service.Â In paragliding, the Quick-Out is used for the separation of the glider when a steerable rescue system is deployed.Â By simultaneously pushing both release buttons, pilot and aircraft are separated effortlessly. In safety trainings, the separation of the glider after a rescue chute deployment turned out to be advantageous.Â Besides the rescue options in case of emergency landings in water, trees, and high winds, the Quick-Out also offers handling advantages compared to conventional karabiners.

Please note: Usage at paragliders with a speedsystem is permitted only in combination with a patent shackle separation system (HKar14) or a brummel hook separation system (HKar141).
The Quick-Out has to be installed according to the directions of the harness manufacturer and requires regular care. It has to be cleaned after contact with aggressive media (e.g. sea water) or with sand and dust because the buttons might jam otherwise. In case of humidity in combination with temperatures below freezing, there is a danger of icing. If the buttons are blocked, the karabiner can not be securely locked anymore. An improper locking of the karabiner is optically recognizable.
One Quick-Out karabiner (which is attached to the harness) can be used in combination with several Quick-Out inserts (which are attached to the aircrafts). Extra Quick-Out inserts (HKar121) should be ordered together with the Quick-Out housing so that the smooth functioning of housing and insert can be tested by the manufacturer.
