Combining maximum security and ease of use like never before, the Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock uses the power of magnets to reinvent the auto-locking carabiner.
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. With magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the nose rather than a twistlock or screwlock, the Magnetron 'biner is simple to operate and totally secure. Both magnetic arms must be individually depressed before the gate can open, to prevent accidental openings. Once open, opposing magnetic fields repel the arms to ensure smooth and reliable gate operation. Symmetric design lets you open the gate easily with just 1 hand, either your right or left. GridLock design features an extension at the bottom of the gate to keep the 'biner properly oriented on your belay loop to avoid cross loading. I-beam spine transitions into a rounded rope-bearing surface for smooth belaying and rappelling. Hot-forging process allows the metal to be moved around and formed into intricate shapes; these shapes can ease handling and reduce weight. Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Belay locking carabiner has a key lock nose that won't snag on pro, ropes or slings, making the 'biner simple to clip. Magnetic arms on the gate come in assorted colors only; sorry, specific color requests cannot be accommodated.
