Here's what other sites are saying:

The classic Black Diamond Positron straight gate carabiner delivers the antisnag benefits of a keylock nose. Slight irregularities means a great price without sacrificing any of the performance.


Black Diamond's Classic Positron keylock carabiner is available as a straight or bent gate. The Positron is a smooth operator for racking and placing stoppers or clipping and cleaning bolts.


Black Diamond designed the Positron Anodized Carabiner to bring the anti-snag benefits of a keylock biner to the 'working class' climber. There simply isn't another keylock biner on the market that can rival the Positron in terms of quality, design, and value. This season the Positron features a solid (non dual-trac) keylock gate, an anodized body...and a lower price. The Positron's keylock nose doesn't snag on pro, ropes, or slings--which translates to easier clips and reduces the chance of open-gate failure. Plus, cleaning overhanging routes is a breeze with the Postiron. The functional shape of the Positron makes it easy to hold, and its bowed back, smooth action, and deep basket add up to make this the most versatile clipping, racking and anchoring biner ever. Bent and straight gate versions available.-Vendor
