    vendor S-biner question

    S-biners ( NiteIze )

    Is it possible for a vendor(s) to carry these in many sizes?

    Hate to give the profit to some of the stores that charge much more than Harbor Freight, the best place I've found.
    But there are no Harbor Freights where I live, I get them when visiting out of state.

    I use the s-biners ( NiteIze ) for a multitude of uses in every size.
    ( From cocoon closure, UQ to TQ, to hooded cape clasp, plus the usual hammock and tarp and gear uses.)

    On one of AHE's video he has them on one of his items.

    Have wanted to ask him or another vendor if they can carry them as hardware items in various sizes.

    So that is a request stated here.
    Understanding that it can be a lot of work for group buys, so am NOT asking for a group buy.

    There are a lot of online retailers that carry various sizes. Backpacking Light has different sizes as well as the Harbor Freight website. You could also score some from Amazon. Pick up a few or add book to your order and get free shipping.

    The dreaded ebay carries them as well. That's where I got my S-biners & Figure 9s from, mostly.

    Hey 3D+G and all, Sorry for the slow reply, late last night my stomach decided to start training for the half pike snowboarding in the olympics and has not stopped doing flips all day.

    I have actually switched to a different micro carabiner since doing up that video that got out about the ridge-line kit. They are just as light but are a lot stronger and come in lots of colors. I have thought about getting an account with Nit-ize but have not yet. I set up the account with them at the gear store I used to work at and if my memory is correct they had a very large minimum order and even larger opening order. $1000+ if I can remember right. For me that is kind of beyond the range if what I have to spend to get going with a company at this point. Battery Junction like listed above has the best price I have seen yet, especially if you order 12+ at a time. But I like the new micro biners that I have now a lot better than anything I have used in the "S" biners. I will probably get them in the store this week as soon as I get caught up on orders and the stomach stop the flips.

    Thanks everyone for the reply.

    PGibson,

    Thanks for the reply.
    Thought it might be a large order situation.
    Will check your current biners when they are in.

    Hope you feel better soon.


    headchange4u,

    Thanks. I'll check that out.

    Yah lots of companies are like that and make if very hard for the little guy to get going. I don't know how many places I have called looking to set up an account for 1 or 2 items they have only to be told that opening order minimum is $2000.00 Can you even dream how many #1 S biners would be at wholesale with those kinds of minimums? Some companies are willing to work with the little guys and some are not.

    Have bought over 30+ s-biners in the last year, for myself and gifts for others.

    The 3packs from HarborFreight are the best deal, $5.?? but only in the store, not online.
    Same 3pack in SportsAuthority and 2 other sportstores here in NYC are $9.??

    Making some more DIY vanCamping and hammock gear; expect to need 1 or 2 dozen more in the next few months.
