Oval Keylock Carabiner

The oval is one of the first shapes that carabiners came in, and it's still the best option when you're racking a lot of gear for alpine, traditional, and multi-pitch climbs. This Oval Keylock Carabiner is Black Diamond's only oval carabiner to come with a snag-free keylock nose. It's kind of like an "old meets new" thing.


  • Classic oval carabiner ideal for alpine and traditional climbs
  • Oval shape proven for increased carrying capacity
  • Snag-free keylock nose eases unclipping
  • Item #BLD00ZE

Love these Keylock Ovals

Love the snag-free design. I use these dedicated to each of my aid ladders and ascenders (upper hole for locking rope)

Holds My Nuts

The oval shape is best for storing nuts. The wires just sit better than a normal carabiner. With the shape, sometimes it's a little hard to tell which side opens. I put colorful tape on the not-gate side to easily tell.

No snags

Keylock nose carabiner for racking a set of nuts. What’s not to love? Nuts are now easily accessible and don’t get snagged on the nose when unclipping.

Size matters!

Old Standards, hollow Salewas, several iterations of generic oval biners and most recently, the BD wiregate ovals aren't as roomy or as less likely to snag on webbing, pitons or wires as the keylock. Full size biners rule.

Does what it should

Opens, closes, opens again and holds me up in between

Solid Carabiner

Using it for the Nuts, I like it a lot. The only problem with this use is that you can't easily figure out what side is opening.

A little on the heavier side but exactly the carabiner you can count on in any situation.

Greatly satisfy

Perfect for holding stuff on your rig as like as water bottler / small ropes and others. There's no "hook" close to the gate so, its easier and faster to take-off your stuff. It wont stuck with it. I dont like to mess with that cause it happened every time with mostly all kinds of biners. That one is strong and pratical. I use it only to carry gear for example on my belt.
