Protectors made from durable plastic material for all Gym Safe Express series quickdraws (Gym Safe Express Plus and Gym Safe Express). Fixed to the ends of the dogbone, the protectors prevent wear and tear on the climbing wall and reduce noise when the quickdraw bangs on the wall. The protectors also prevent the rotation of the carabiner and quicklink ensuring that they will be loaded on the major axes. Protectors are removable and allow the hardware to be right or left facing depending on their placement and the route. The upper protector for the 10 mm quicklink can only be assembled when the quicklink is properly closed in order to prevent improper installations.
