Description

Versatile & easy to clip 'n' clean, the Positron is positively nifty.

With a keylock nose that prevents the Positron Screwgate from snagging on pro, this locking biner is ultra easy to clip and clean. Sharing all the unique features of the regular Positron with the addition of a screwgate, this biner has a deep basket for non-fumbly clips and a wide gate opening for piling in the runners. The Positron Screwgate is THE versatile locker to have—a great pro, anchor, jumar, haul bag or top-rope option.

Black Diamond Positron Screwgate on LCT

Black Diamond Positron Screwgate on LCT

BD Positron Screwgate Carabiner fixed to my son's backpack during recent hike of California's Lost Coast Trail. The action of screw lock is super-smooth, super-fast. This 'biner is an excellent value!

Reliable biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my favorite carabiner that I have for all purpose use. Easy to clip and manipulate/lock. Strong and can take a beating like all Black Diamond items.

All-Purpose Locker

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Light, smooth clipping hookless design. Screwgate is reliable and doesn't jam up. I have like 10 of these things. Anchors, rescue systems, ascenders, anything that has a life depending on it gets one of these. And I've trusted them countless times with mine. No higher praise.

Solid BD biner

It's a positron, they're great! Locking works smoothly. Not huge, medium sized biner, but I bought them for things like building top anchors so that's ok. Light weight and decently priced for a quality locking biner.

Strong, Light Locker!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I really like the BD Positron Screwgate cause they're crazy light yet hold their strength. Use them on all my directs and a some ATCs. The gate is a tad small but I'd go with these lockers!

Strong, Light Locker!

Best Carabiners For Your Buck!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Very solid carabiner. Super durable. Mainly use mine in setting up anchors. Have never had an issue with them coming unlocked or bending. There are two color locking gates that come with these models. Unfortunately, you can't specify which you want...Bernardo has the details here if you scroll down a ways..

Responded on

I ordered four the last time, and got four different colors: bluish, goldish, orange, and brown. I might try to ask for color coordination next time.

Solid Small Locker

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I use these for setting top-rope anchors and locking in my PAS when I get to the anchor bolts.

The Good
--The same solid, reliable, gate action I've come to expect from Black Diamond gear
--Small size; doesn't eat up lots of space at anchor bolts
--Cheap at retail, even better on sale

The Bad
--Doesn't belay as smoothly with my ATC as a Gridlock or a Mini-Pearbiner
--Doesn't nest as cleanly as others when used for setting reversed-opposed 'biners on a top rope anchor (My favorites here are Omega D 'biners).

I'll be picking up a few more of these , since as I climb more I find more uses for locking carabiners.

Great for cleaning/clipping direct

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Small size and keylock function means they're easy to handle around anchor chains. Perfect for cleaning. Light, too.

Great price and light weight.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's too small and not intended for use as a belay carabiner. I use these for all other locking carabiner needs whether a PAS, Anchor setup, whatever.

Go-to Anchor Biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great locking biners and quite versatile as well. I use mine primarily for setting up anchors for sport climbing.
Easy to operate too

Personal anchor biner, after years on the harness and scraping stuff. doing pretty well.

good all-rounder

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Cheap and light. Not heavy duty, but you shouldn't be belaying off something this small either. The perfect anchor, rescue, and light haul biner. Just wish they had more colors to code like Neutrinos.

Great size biner

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I dont really like those large biners, but smaller ones are only good for one thing. This I've found to be a perfect happy medium. It can be used for almost anything. I bought two specifically to use as master point opposing biners.

Great all around locker

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

In ice climbing especially, you can never have enough lockers. These biners are perfect for using in ice climbing as they are just big enough to use as a belay biner, can be used to set up anchors, and to set up good haul systems. Honestly, just good for almost every possible scenario. The only situation I would not recommend these biners for are if you need a belay biner to attach more than just one thing to. These just won't really be big enough for that.

perfect

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

great locker biner. I typically use mine for anchor building, and have one on my harness for glacier travel or short roping up steeper slopes. screw lock is fairly easy to operate even with gloves on.

Small and Simple

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

They get the job done cheaper and lighter than most others, though they are compact - just keep that in mind.
