Karabiners must be maintained to prevent damage to the springs. After use they must be washed in hot water to clear out the dirt and salt from the spring recess. Lubricate with 3 in 1 oil once dry. If this is not done then when you open the gate the spring will not compress and if you continue to squeeze the gate then the force is diverted onto the nylon retaining tab which will bend under the compression and break.
