Black Diamond is known for producing high-quality equipment for outdoor sports, and the Positron Screwgate locking carabiner is not an exception. It is a small-scale tool that has a D-shape everyone seems to prefer over any other shape. This is mainly due to the biner’s ability to maintain a good ratio of strength to weight, which, in turn, contributes to the carabiner’s outstanding performance.

The carabiner has got a keylock nose that prevents snagging and a deep basket that eliminates the muddling around when clipping.

The gate can easily be locked and unlocked without any accidental openings in the midst of a climb. This means that no matter how high you climb, you will be safe at every point.
