Made for all-around use, the Black Diamond Light D carabiner is perfect when size and weight are a concern. D-shape directs most forces along the spine of the biner rather than the weaker gate-side. Made of cold-forged aluminum alloy for light weight, performance and superior strength. Raised gate latch allows you to identify the working end of the biner by just a touch.
Although some may think it's old school, the Black Diamond Light D Carabiner works in places where other carabiners just don't get the job done. Its small diameter nose fits through old bolt hangers too small for most 'biners, so you don't get to the end of a long slab runout only to find that you can't clip the single buttonhead. Its simple shape created a strong 24kN breaking strength. The Black Diamond Light D Carabiner also works great for racking stoppers and pins.
