There should be a couple Black Diamond Light D Carabiners on every trad-climber's rack.

loses it shiny color
great for racking stoppers
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
use it to take my stopper set when trad climbing, and most of the times if i have to leave a binner at a rap station this is ti, because of the cheap price
Perfect for setting up slacklines.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
All around great biner that I have used to set up a slackline in the backyard. Makes it an inexpensive way set up a slackline where ever you please.
Comparison of BD carabiners, nonlocking
See table for comparative stats.
Solid, simple and does it's job
I use this for anchors, third hands, hauling gear and everything in between. Nothing fancy or ground breaking, just a simple, solid biner
Bought this to secure excess gear and act as my general purpose carabiner clip. It's nice and light, but super durable as well. No problems with it so far.
No frills, gets it done
This is your basic no frills solid biner. They're great for a budget, and they're very shiny and pretty. Fancy multicolored biners certainly have their place, like color coding your nuts. For anything else you'd need a non-locking biner for, why pay more?
Great, light weight biner
I love these biners. And for the price, you can't beat 'em. I work on ropes courses and these come in handy for gear biners and for quick connectors. Wonderful. Would buy more.
Solid Good Biner
I use these biners on my runners that I use at the chains atop sport routes. I like that the biner is thicker to cater to the wear the rope puts on it when TR'ing. The gate is nice and wide which is nice. Looks pretty sharp as well. Definitely recommend this carabiner.
Compare and come back for these
These ain't the greatest thing since TP, but if you just need some good priced lightweight gear these will be in your bag. I have these and the standard Black Diamond D biners and for 3kN difference in capacity the weight of these makes up for everything. The "heavy duty" biners feel like double the weight in your hand. Don't get me wrong I do not use these when rapping, occasionally somewhere in my climbing setup I'll stick 1 or 2 for a backup. The term "light" makes me superstitious when I'm hanging a hundred feet over nothing, but nonetheless i keep 4 in my bag & 2 on my pack for general accessories.
Great biner for the price!
For the Price this is a great biner to use for keeping your shoes together, putting your chalk bag on your haul loop, or even just keeping a couple with you incase you have to lower of a (cheap) pice of gear on a lead climb. They are a bit heavy but they last forever.
Cheap, strong, functional. Check, Check, and Check. If you're worried about weight, go for a wire biner. If you're worried about hooking you're rope or gear when unclipping, go for a keylock. If you're a cheapo like me but still want great functional gear, this is the way to go. Basic and solid. If I have to bail on something or leave gear behind too, much less painful to leave one or two of these behind (costs less than the post climb pitcher of brew). I've accumulated a number of random biners over time (some of which cost almost twice what this one does) and this basic one still seems to be one that gets used just as much if not more than the others.
I use these along with my bent gate BD Quicksilver biners to make quickdraws out of 4ft dynema slings for trad climbing. They are cheap and work great! The only thing they are lacking is color, but I can deal with that for this price!
Does the job
Very well built.
for being a light carabiner, it is very sturdy when you need it to be, i expected it to be more loose, but it is strong and high quality.
definitely worth the money even if i'm just going to use it to hold my chalk bag to my harness or shoes together.
Good biner. It does what it's supposed too. I keep a couple on me as bailout biners if needed. Nice and lightweight.
This is a great utility biner for all kinds of uses. Lasts years and years...
