Snap hooks, also known as snap hooks, spring snap hooks, spring links, or climbing buckles – are snap hooks with spring triggers for quick and easy attachment of leashes, ropes, or other target lines. In addition to being a typical style of climbing carabiner, snap hooks are also used in various industrial products, from dog leashes to luggage to marine, agricultural, and construction applications.
