Chart of Technical Specifications
The kN, or kilonewton, rating measures the amount of force it would take before a piece of equipment failed, as opposed to how much mass it can hold in a static situation. Objects with relatively low mass (like a human) can generate substantial energy (force) when accelerating, of course, so it can be misleading if a piece of climbing or fall-arrest equipment were rated in terms of pounds or kilograms. In order to convert kilownewtons into pounds-of-force (another measure of force), simply multiply the rating in kN by 224.8 (1kN = 224.8 lbf). All Fusion carabiners are stamped with closed, open-gate and minor axis strengths measured in kilonewtons.
