HangTen Posted June 4, 2019 Share Posted June 4, 2019 Hello, I was today reading of an incident where a PPG pilot was involved in a fatal accident and while the exact cause has not yet been determined or published, some suspect carabiner failure. My question is, it is possible (or safe) to use more than one Carabiner where the risers attach to the PPG frame or attaching points? Could you use two carabiners on each side for example? Would it be physically possible? My reasoning may be faulty, but explainable. If a carabiner fails at low altitude, you will have little if any chance to deploy a chute. Having at least two would ensure that even if one failed, a second should still hold. Also, if there are two, the stress on each one would be theoretically halved.
