Black Diamond designed the lightweight Magnetron VaporLock to help you set up belays or clip into anchors on long, free routes quickly and efficiently. Its Magnetron gate uses two magnetic arms and a steel insert at the nose for a completely secure closure that's super speedy to lock and unlock. The keylock nose lets you unclip from anything with snag-free convenience, and biner's pear shape increases friction up to 30% when you're rappelling or lowering with an ATC. Its shape also makes this biner an excellent choice when you need a munter hitch.
