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.

Super Light

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I currently own a hand full of Carabiners and these are the lightest I have ever had. At first when I grabbed them out of the box I thought they were fake due to being so light. Really goes to show how old my current equipment is. I will def order more of these.

Highly useful locker that I take when weight matters. Strong and light, the Positron is great for anchor building.
The small size makes it easy to carry four+ on my harness while free climbing without feeling too bulky and heavy.
While aid climbing, it seems like you can never bring up enough of these!
Stock up and get out!

excellent for anchoring

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

i find the black diamond positron is ideal for anchoring. i have tried self belaying with it and it does not work well, because of its angle and awkward shape, the rope doesent run smoothly.
overall, its cheap, lightweight, and very durable!

Responded on

They work well for a quick munter belay with a glacier rope! Probably too small to use with a device or large diameter rope though.

Awesome Biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These guys are the bees knees. They are small and lightweight, but very strong - I'm never worried about them being the failure point in any of my systems. They're cheap and flat out work. If you're after a smaller sized locking biner, look no further!

Great for clipping into bolt anchors

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Even though big, fat locking carabiners are super reassuring when you're climbing, they're not so great when you can't fit them into the bolts at the top of a pitch. I've had this unassuming little locker on my rack for a couple years, and the best thing about it is that when you get to a bolt that has that tight angle, it always fits through the hole. I recommend carrying four of these, one for each bolt at an anchor and two for your master point. They weigh less and take up less rack space than those big fat reassuring lockers and they are just as strong. Interestingly, mine has taken a beating and seems to be impervious to scratches. Not that I care, but its kind of magical.

SUPER bargain-'biner!

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

I have been a LONG time fan of Petzl's "Attache" series of lockers, namely the Attache 3-D, Attache, and their "William" carabiners.

That was until I was introduced to this bad-boy!

Not only is the Positron a fraction of the price of Petzl's lockers, but I'm a firm believer it feels better while clipping, belaying, and setting up anchors as well. Thus, this may be my new favorite!

It is REALLY small, which is perfect for simple anchors and belaying where you don't need the extra space or weight. That's probably my favorite feature is its small size.

It doesn't have the bright RED markings on it to remind a belayer to check if the lock is engaged either and I find this useful because then YOU ALWAYS have a tendency to make sure regardless of how it appears. This is a great feature IMO. It keeps climbers conscious of their actions rather than creating a lazy shortcut.

All in all a great locker. I'm sold on these little guys!

SUPER bargain-'biner!

Carabiner

I have purchased carabiners through multiple brands and they only seem to last a few months. This brand seems to be holding up better so far. Great buy!

Everyone should have them

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This caribiner is great I have at least 20 of them. Super bomber and great for anchors. BUY SOME NOW!!

Everyone should have them

Perfect Anchor Kit Biner

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I keep three of these attached to my cordelette to build anchors with on trad routes, or pre-tie a 4' sling with two of these on multi pitch sport routes. I've got about ten of these now and find uses for them all the time, from building top rope anchors, to using my my ATC in guide mode, and tying into a piece of pro when needed. They're fairly light and small enough to have several extra on your harness.

Awesome Gear

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This carabiner is one great piece of gear. It's easy to use and locks smoothly. Just after I bought it, I got really confused that someone else had taken mine at my school's gym, but then I found out they had just bought a whole rack of them as well. Either way, this is what I use for belaying every time.

Great locker

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These biners are an essential part of my rack.
Just like every other review says- lightweight, good size, easy to use.

I have a handful of these to use with my PAS, as well as building top rope anchors

There are needs, and there are wants

This biner is a NEED. Im just getting into sport climbing, and this piece of equipment is great. Its easy to use, functions well, and is secure,

A must for any rack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Add a few of these for anchors, and tying yourself in short with the rope. Small in size and can often be manipulated through the eye of a bolt hanger without unscrewing.

Sick of other lockers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Tiered of large lockers that take an hour to unscrew? buy this one, I have a few for anchor building. The light weight advantage of this biner makes it a favorite for multipitch climbers. You cant go wrong.

Great Carabiner

As pretty much every other review says - this is nice, light, smaller, and very effective - can't go wrong!

Perfect locker

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Light, strong, easy action, Everything you want in a screw gate. I used one on my belay device for years until I finally wore a grove to deep for my liking. Great little biner, I would recommend.

Trusted.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

As simple a a locking carabiner can be, Black diamond still finds way to step out from the pack.

This works great, it's lighter than similar makers carbiners and it's just as strong. It's also a little smaller which I like.

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!
