Description

The lightest locker in Black Diamond's line.

Black Diamond's Quicksilver Screwgate is updated with a locking gate and screwgate sleeve, and now shares the same body as the Quicksilver2, with its wide rope-bearing width of 9.5mm and an angled nose for easy clipping. The relatively light weight of the Quicksilver Screwgate (56 g) makes it great for big wall and alpine anchors, while a deep basket allows climbers to pile in the runners and slings. Black Diamond created this biner for climbers who place a premium on weight, yet demand workhorse durability and high strength out of their lockers. –Vendor *Comes in assorted colors.

Simple and effective

Simple, strong, effective and cost efficient. More elaborate options exist, they are more expensive.

Black Diamond Locking Carabiner

Great carabiner. Unsrew lock with one finger easily.

Priced Right

I have several of these and have not had any issues with any of them. They are hard to beat for around 8 bucks. Very durable.

Is this good enough for top roping? To use...

Is this good enough for top roping? To use 2 of these as the master point where you put climbing rope through?

Best Answer Responded on

Yes, this is a very strong biner. Though you should really be using 3 anchor points for rigging.

Just okay

If your looking for speed this is not the carabiner. Good quality just to short of an opening if you were to lock anything bigger than a 10mm rope.

Wonderful cheep lightweight locker

I always try to have at least two or three more of these than I think I will need clipped to one of my gear loops on any kind of climb that I do. I use them for constructing anchors (I try to use only lockers in my anchor systems), for securing my ATC Guide to the master-point on guide mode when belaying a second, and for securing myself to my anchor (also something which it is best to do with lockers). This biner is small, and the nose does catch on webbing and rope as other reviewers have said, but for me this is more than made up for by its lighter weight and cheeper price. This biner is almost as light as a non-locker, which means that carrying these instead of larger lockers lets me carry a couple of extras; important, because one thing that a climber almost always can use more of in an emergency self-rescue scenario (or any unplanned scenario for that matter) is extra locking carabiners.

Love them both

I bought both the screw lock and autolocking versions of this biner. I didn't want the auto locker, but my local store only had one screw lock version in stock so I grabbed one of each. I have no regrets.

I spent a Saturday belaying kids who were climbing and rapping. I used the autolocker as my belay biner and the screw lock for anchoring me. The autolocker was great for constantly switching rap lines. Ropes move smoothly through the biner. Price is right, and they are not to heavy either.

Basic lockers

This carabiner is basic, medium sized, strong and less expensive. The screw-gate is basic and smooth. But the metal wears down with continuous use but isn't too bad while other carabiners hold up a little better.

does the job

These lockers are great for setting up anchors and the price can't be beat. I got a few of these to try out for the last few weeks and they have done pretty well. I have had a little bit of an issue with them sticking a bit but its not a big deal they still work great! BD gear is always on point and this locker is some good bang for your buck.

Good Locker

Biner is fairly priced and Black Diamond always makes great gear.

It works

It gets the job done but is nothing special. The notch in the gate makes getting rope or webbing in and out a pain. This is especialy bad because it is a small carabiner. Also because the caribiner is not rounded it does not work well for setting up top rope. The only upside is that it is cheap. If i was to buy this size locker again i would just pay the extra money to get hte positron locker because is has a notchless nose.

Sweet Biner

Great small locking carab for a daisey chain or setting up an anchor. I wouldn't use this for munter hitches as I prefer something larger like the Rocklock that is more rounded. I keep about four of these on my rack and use them for various tasks -BD makes the best equipment. You can't go wrong with these!

Great for the price. Go BD

Great biner for the price. Its a normal size biner. I am a big fan of keylock nose, so next time around i will spend the extra bit to get a locking biner with that feature.

Great 'Biners!

I bought these as a special stocking stuffer for my 10 year old daughter, and I wish that I had purchased a second set (for me) as well!

They are sooo light, and the locking mechanism is smooth and easy to use: now, she is "ripping" up the walls at even greater speed - hopefully, I'll be able to keep up!

High Value Quality

For how much the carabiner costs you get alot. It is durable and very lightweight making it a good item to add to your climbing arsenal.

The screwgate has high quality checkering on it giving it great traction. This will be nice if you are using it in icy or wet conditions or if you wear gloves.

Simple, lightweight, affordable and Black Diamond bomb proof- what more could you ask for?

Gets the Job Done!

When I was just getting into trad I ordered a few of these for multiple uses. They definitely get the job done, although if you want something to use for a MP or use to clip into multiple pieces of webbing/rope you might want to get something bigger. These biners are on the smaller side of things and are not great for things like clipping yourself in. They are still bomber though and useful to have on your harness just in case!

Works

A twist-gate 'biner is more convenient, but more expensive. This was my first locking 'biner and years later I have many of them. Tough and a good value.

Black Diamond Quicksilver Carabiner

Needed a carabiner to facilitate the building of a single rope bridge and attach to a swiss seat. Tech rep on line indicated this one would work well. Unfortunately, the gate is too small to allow quick connection/disconnection. Other than that the carabiner is light wieght and functions well for anything other than 3 or more 5/8" ropes.

Old faithful

Great locking biner. Not too big that it takes up room on you rack. But big enough to get the job done. Great classic design that works for many years.
