HotForge Carabiner

The HotForge Carabiner is a classic Black Diamond model with a solid gate specialized for sport climbing. Black Diamond modernized it with a lighter, hot forged construction, a larger rope-bearing surface for longer lasting durability, and flats that reduce the chance of accidentally opening the gate at a wrong time. Its nose also got a little tweak to facilitate easier clipping, and the keylock nose eliminates any chance of snagging. It's available in straight and bent gates for bolts or ropes.
