Some of the more popular questions regarding our promotional carabiner keychains. We hope you find this helpful. If you can't find the answer to your question(s) here please contact us for help.

What's a carabiner keychain?

A carabiner keychain is made from either metal or plastic. It's formed into a standard or custom shape
with a pressure activated spring loaded hinged gate. The gate allows for quick and easy attaching to straps and loops. For more information please see what's a promotional carabiner clip? on this website.

What are the origins of carabiner keychains?
Carabiner keychains arrived on the scene around 1995. Carabiner keychains or promotional carabiners are replicas of "real" climbing carabiners. The two main differences are the size and load bearing capacity. Promotional carabiners range in size from around 5mm (mini carabiners) to 8mm (large promotional carabiners) and are typically 1/2 to 2/3 the size of real carabiners. Promotional carabiners are also "no load bearing" and not used for climbing. They function to hold light items such as keys and small tools. They can also be used to hold other lightweight objects. Learn more about the history of carabiner keychains.

What's laser engraving?
Laser engraving is a process of creating custom marks on the surface of metal, wood, glass and other materials. Lasers generate a high energy beam of light that produces a bright white mark on the surface of anodized aluminum carabiners. Learn more about carabiner keychain laser engraving methods.

Can promotional carabiners be engraved on both sides?
Most promotional carabiners can be engraved on both sides. If the "no load bearing" stamp is on the frame then only one side can be engraved as is the case with our mini carabiner keychains.

How many characters can be engraved?
This will depend on the size of the image area. The engravable image area ranges from about 1.0" to 2.0" or approx. 15 to 25 characters including spaces, respectively. Most carabiners can be engraved with up to two lines of text alone or in combination with a simple logo.

Can you reproduce my logo on promotional carabiners?
Yes, original designs and logos can be reproduced. Please see how to order carabiner keychains on this website for artwork requirements for engraving.

Will the engraving wear off?
Laser engraved marks are one of the most durable custom imprints available. The longevity of the mark will be determined by the amount of abrasion to the anodized surface of the carabiner as the mark itself is defined by the colored anodized coating which surrounds it.

Is there an artwork set-up charge?
Yes, for most items there is a $25 artwork set-up charge. The set-up charge is sometimes waived during special promotions. Please check with one of our customer service reps for upcoming product specials and discounts.

When I reorder will there be another artwork set-up charge?
Artwork is kept on file for two years. After this time another artwork set-up charge will be incurred. Within two years there is no artwork set-up charge if the same artwork is being used for the reorder.

Can I assort colors within a single order?
Yes, colors can be assorted within an order.

What is the minimum per color?
The minimum order per color is 25 pcs (please note our min. carabiner keychain order is 50 pcs)

What's the lead-time for blank carabiners?

How long will it take to have a custom shape carabiner keychain produced?
