The Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Carabiner uses the power of magnets to reinvent the auto-locking carabiner. Magnetron Technology uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the carabiner's keylock nose to create an ultra-secure, self-clearing and redundant locking mechanism that can be easily used with either hand.
The reinvention of the auto-locking carabiner has arrived. The Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Belay locking carabiner uses magnets for secure locking and unparalleled ease of use.
Featuring Black Diamond's new magnetic locking mechanism, the Magnetron GridLock carabiner brings a new level of ease and safety to belay-specific carabiners. This unique gate design doesn't freeze in the winter and doesn't clog up with sand and dirt the way a screwgate does. In addition to the one-of-a-kind gate, the Magnetron GridLock also has a separated bottom and top so as to completely eliminate the chances of cross-loading, because this is one piece of gear that absolutely cannot fail. To further ensure that its safety, Black Diamond hot-forged this carabiner to make it as tough as it can be. As a final touch, this carabiner also got a keylock nose to eliminate snags when you're taking your friend off belay.
