Black Diamond GridLock Screwgate Carabiner

BD Gridlock CarabinerThe keys to a good belay and good belay partner.

A proper belay can be the most critical aspect of staying safe while climbing. Besides having an attentive partner with appropriate technique, a good locking carabiner is critical in keeping the rope attached to the belayer. Black Diamond has taken this very seriously and created the GridLock Screwgate carabiner. This biner isolates the belay loop from the rope and belay device, eliminating the chance of cross loading the carabiner. Never again will the rope run across the locking gate of your belay carabiner and jeopardize your partner on the sharp end. This revolutionary belay carabiner received the 2011 editors choice award from Climbing Magazine. Weighing in at only 76g and testing at a maximum strength of 22kn of force this carabiner is a must have for any climber! – Kevin McGarity
