Injuries:

In a small percentage of the carabiners, the gate pusher (the component that holds the spring against the carabiner body) may displace, potentially preventing the gate from closing or the mechanism from locking completely. This could lead to a situation where the carabiner could break or open during use, causing the user to fall from a height.
