Item #BDI-0546

Every once in a while technology in the climbing world does something besides reiterate other products currently in production, the Black Diamond Magnetron Gridlock Carabiner broke the mold with this one. The Magnetron uses opposing magnetic arms in the gate that slide into the keylock nose and lock upon their introduction to the nose. This provides a secure locking mechanism they cannot be hindered or compromised by such things as sand, dirt, grit or whatever else people gunk up their screwlock carabiners with. Not to be outdone by any other company, Black Diamond then decided to use yet another innovation in this carabiner that adds yet another layer of security with their GridLock technology. The bottom end of this carabiner (the end which sits closest to your belay loop) permits free-flowing movement of the carabiner in all needed ways without allowing the carabiner to be cross loaded while belaying your climbing partner. If you are looking for added security and preventative measures of misfortune, this is a carabiner worth owning.
