      KN stands for Kilo Newtons. A numerical rating for sudden stress/force applied to the carabiner.

      While Bob's answer is correct, it is only a qualitative answer. Here is a quantitative answer: A "Newton" is the measure of force in the MKS (Meter-Kilogram-Second) version of the "metric system" of weights and measures. If you put a kilogram of mass (matter) on a table, the mass would press down on the table with 9.8 Newtons of force. In the FPS (Foot-Pound-Second) "English system" of weights and measures we would say the same kilogram of mass weighs approximately 2.2 pounds. So 9.8 Newtons = approximately 2.2 pounds, or 4.45 Newtons = 1 pound, or 1 Newton = 0.224 pounds. One kiloNewton is 1000 Newtons or about 224 pounds (1000/4.45). So a 24,000-Newtons strength of a carabiner = approximately 5,390 pounds of strength, 27,000 Newtons = 6,060 pounds, and 30,000 Newtons = 6730 pounds, etc.
