Default Aluminium clips on Kayaks.

Yep! The biners holding my air bags in my creeker must be oiled every now
and then or they do indeed semi seize, or get corroded.

Yep I did, but that can be solved by moving it a couple of times untill
it moves smoothly again, and then using a bit of oil to lubricate it...
If it's corroded too much, it's time to replace it, of course.

For me, going out into the sea to surf usually causes the carabiners to
corrode a bit. Being on a river, it can take a long time, but eventually
they do corrode...
