Every soldier should have at least a couple of D-rings (carabiners) handy. I keep at least one dummy-corded to my IBA for those fun sensitive item checks. In the meantime, they're not going anywhere. I also used to run my M-4 sling through the ring to make sort of a make-shift tac sling. I have a couple on the bottom of my assault pack that I hook my CLS bag to. I've even acquired one that has an LED light with three different color bulbs in it. With enough time, I could make or fix anything with a roll of 550 cord, a roll of 100 mph tape, and a couple D-rings.
