The SMC oval was one of the first aluminum carabiners manufactured in the US in the 1960s. It is a classic, traditional carabiner, a functional design that has stood the test of time. A major benefit of using a "true" oval carabiner is that it is very difficult to load incorrectly and the forces tend to "self-equalize" between the pulley and other equipment, ropes and anchors. Balancing the load equally on the spine and the gate allows the carabiner to maintain full strength under a variety of conditions. Ovals are most often used in critical climbing or rescue applications where a stuck gate must be avoided, and then are always used as pairs, rigged opposite/opposed.
