    Positively perfect.

    Black Diamond's Positron Screwgate Carabiner is the locker that every dirtbag climber dreams of, due to its solid security, compact lightness, and dirt-cheap price tag. Despite its inexpensiveness, the Positron still styles the ever-popular keylock nose for snag-free unclipping.

    Works Good

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

    Bought this as a gift, but boyfriend said "Pretty basic to be honest. I mean they always works good, never had one go out on me, and for the price doesn't get much better."

    My Go-To Lockers

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have about a half dozen of these and, with the exception of my the biner on my belay/rappel device, these get used more than any other locker. They especially excel at anchor building. They're small, but not so small that they're hard to handle, and both the gate and screw action are smooth even after 2 years of extensive use.

    Solid Screw Gate

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The BD positron is a nice little screw gate perfect for making anchors and such. It has an ergonomic fit and an easy to use gate. Great for any anchor building shenanigans.

    Quality and price.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Solid carabiner that I'd trust to use in conjunction with an anchor configuration or an ATC. Pretty straightforward: high quality, good price.

    For my PAS

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got this biner for anchoring in my personal anchoring system to the wall while I'm cleaning sport or trad anchors. I like how small and light it is. I also like how quick this biner is to work with. I think that the D shape is just a little bit small if I needed to get more than just a PAS locked in on it.

    Great lightweight versatile biner!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I just bought several of these with some personal anchor systems because I am
    Taking my family to the Telluride via Ferratta. I chose this biner because it's lightweight and easy to clip and lock. They are also the perfect size.

    Nothing left to add except...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    MORE COLORSSSSSS. I like my rack to look like it came right out of the 90's MTB scene (Kudos to Paul for keeping the dream alive). I do have a catalog of a few years vintage so I have a dull rainbow of these, but I can't complain: these are sweet. I don't know why you're even reading a review of these, you should be out climbing. Get them, get more, get the bigger HMS cousin too. When they're beat up, retire them to river gear or keys or artwork.

    Simple and Smooth

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The BD Positron's are my favorite locking multi-use carabiner. The screwgate action is simple, smooth, and consistent. I primarily use these for building anchors, and for a personal anchor. If you're not a huge fan of brightly colored lockers, the muted grey, green, and black colorway looks great on any rack.

    Safe, Simply, Light, and Effective

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The title of the review says it all. I have never had a problem with this carabiner, and it works as advertised. 12/10 would bind again.
