    Awesome Purple Black Diamond Nitron

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this purple Black Diamond Nitron Screwgate Carabiner for my 12 yr old daughter who has to have matching (purple) from head to toes climbing outfit. She loves it and it does add some flare to her matching purple harness. Super reliable and easy to use. I recommend this product.

    Awesome Purple Black Diamond Nitron

    Point of comparison

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these for more gear-side anchor carabiners. The other pair I prefer are the Petzl Spirit 3D Screw-Lock carabiners. The Nitrons are slightly heavier than the Spirit 3D's but also feel structurally more burly as if they'll last a bit longer. I definitely do not prefer the screw action on the BD lockers compared to my Petzl ones, and also find the colored track when your gate is open on the Spirit 3D's to be a worthwhile security feature. Overall satisfied with my purchase

    Anchoring Must Haves

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I like using these for my anchoring systems, especially if I want to keep things light and little. They wear really well and are easy to work with for fast and safe anchoring. I also liek to make trad anchors with these for the same reason.

    Bought a few of these to use on my PAS. Light, durable and perfect for both sport and trad climbing. Trust worthy brand that always delivers!

    go-to locker

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I never leave the deck without 'em. From personal anchor to glacier travel, these are light, versatile, quick and easy to lock and unlock. I use a larger-gate mini-pear, attache' or maybe one day a magnetron for belay duty, but these guys get all the rest of the action.

    Black Diamond Nitron Screw gate carab

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Has an awesome sleek look. Nice little strong screw-gate biner. I found was very easy use when setting up an anchor etc. I do think, however that for a couple extra bucks the Petzl attaché is a better option (wider gate, red safety strip underling screwgate, smoother screwgate).

    BD Nitron

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This carabiner is a step up from the BD Positron locking biner in terms of being slightly lighter weight, but similar in most other aspects and size. It is a bit more expensive than the positron. I’ve used both and find them both to be a good go-to locking biner. Have used for basic functions like setting up a top rope anchor, using with a personal anchor to clean sport routes, and using w/ a prusik when rapping w/ an ATC. This carabiner has a narrower gate than others (like the petzl attaché), so depending on what you are using it for could be an issue.

    Favorite Lockers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using these lockers as my go to anchor biners for years. They are small, lightweight, and easy to use. The screwgate never gets stuck or catches.

    Wonderful carabiner.

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave this as a gift.

    "This Carabiner has been nothing but amazing. It's not much of a surprise with it being black diamond. The screw gate is super smooth and stays tight. The color is quite a bit darker than in the picture. Still an awesome color though. i would definitely recommend this carabiner. "
