Magnetron Carabiner

Locking carabiners add a certain security when facing seemingly endless walls of rock; unfortunately, screwing them closed kills time, and existing auto-locking models won’t exactly be winning design awards anytime soon. Unsurprisingly, Black Diamond’s fix involves the magnets: their Magnetron features a unique (and ultra-secure) auto-locking mechanism that’s easily opened using just one hand. The GridLock shape, which isolates the belay loop to eliminate cross-loading, is just icing on the cake.
