Mountaineering enthusiasts can find all sorts of uses for the standard carabiner, and now Jingyu Lee suggests its integration into a handy walking stick. Called the Carabiner Mountain Stick, the stabilizing pole is convenient to have at hand on lengthy and challenging expeditions, and with this design, you can attach other useful objects to it too.
A telescopic body enables you to shorten the climber's cane to create compactness when it isn't required. With it closed up, the Carabiner Mountain Stick can be easily clipped onto the side of a backpack, or even to the user's outerwear. This contraption would be lightweight and could be treated like a hub fastener, holding other carabiners and the like.
