    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.

    Good biner, not so great screw action

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    This biner is nicely shaped and a bit bigger than most offset D's. However, both of the ones I received had loose and scratchy feeling screw threads. You couldn't flick them closed like you can with most screwlocks.

    My Go-To Carabiners

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Whenever I need to replenish my stock, this is what I look for. The locking mechanism remains smooth after regular use, and only gets crunchy when you repeatedly repel into sandy water. They're lightweight too, so throwing an extra on my harness "just in case" is no big deal.

    Fast & Light

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Sweet little locking 'biner. It's light enough to support my "fast and light" approach without making any sacrifices on quality. The only thing I would be aware of is it's I-beam construction and how rapelling on it (or even using it as a top-rope anchor) will wear this 'biner down faster than a non-I-beam style biner.

    Great size

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have read reviews where carabiners get negative reviews due to their size. Different size beaners are used for different things. As the name says, these are Positron carabiners. That means they are the same size as the carabiners used in BD most current line of quick draws.
    I tend to use larger carabiners for repelling and belaying, but these are perfect for so many other situations. Judging them for what they are... they are perfect! Especially when you catch them on a Backcountry sale.
    Perfect carabiner!

    One Of My First

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I like this carabiner a lot, it feels heavy duty without feeling overly heavy. So far it has been my go to for my tube belay and works great. As some have said I have noticed a groove being worn into it from the rope. All around good carabiner, worth the price. For me as a newbie to the buying of climbing gear, I'm glad I have this carabiner, but I now know why some carabiners are more specifically designed.

    Great smaller biner

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These are great. I recommend them for purposes requiring a locking carabiner, but not a huge radius. They are light, and the twist lock and gate are super smooth. My primary use is setting top rope anchors.

    Go-To Accessory Locker

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The Positron is a rad biner for anchors and just about everything else besides rappelling, where you'll be better off with a locker that has a rounded basket profile (instead of the Positron's I-beam style). They're pretty light, compact, and have an easy screw and clipping movement.

    BD Positron

      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 for using w/ a prusik when rapping w/ an ATC. Have used with a belay device for sport climbing, but have since acquired a belay specific locking biner that I love (prevents rotation of carabiner and crossloading). 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.

      When will you have the positron BLD00HL back in stock? Really like this carabiner. Please contact
