    VaporLock Screwgate Carabiner

    Black Diamond's VaporLock Screwgate Carabiner checks in under two ounces and is best used for alpine climbing or setting up anchors. Used with a belay device, the VaporLock's unique shape increases friction while rappelling with twin or half ropesand is compatible with munter hitches if you're using ropes skinnier than 9.5mm. Black Diamond designed this carabiner with a keylock nose for snag-free convenience.

    • Light locking carabiner ideal for long free climbs
    • Flatter pear shape increases friction on ATC up to 30%
    • Munter hitch compatible on ropes up to 9.4mm
    • Keylock nose eliminates snagging while unclipping
    • Item #BLD00HI

    Lock It Up and Stay Safe

    Familiarity:I've used it several times

    Not all Carabiner's are created equal. The screwgate locking carabiner's by Black Diamond are light, compact and super durable to keep you safe no matter what the application. I use mine to anchor up at the top of the thousand of sport routes within the Wasatch Range. Paired up with your favorite sling or daisy chain, lock it up and focus on the task at hand while staying confident in your protection. They are smaller than most locking carabiners which does not bother me but can be cumbersome for people with bigger hands. Love these carabiners and have been super impressed with them so far!

    Light and secure

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    For my use, occasional canyoneering this suits my needs. Decided to try this out because I was having a little trouble inserting the rope with a spring loaded locking gate. Just be sure to turn the screw lock closed.

    Light but Cramped

    Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

    Used for: Mostly climbing multi-pitch rock routes Good: light weight and easy to use, function well for basic needs Bad: These carabiners are ridged and therefore make it harder to belay up a second using a reverso/atc guide because of the added friction. Sometimes added friction is good, but not in this case. I prefer the rounded carabiners such as the Black Diamond Rocklock which also are a bit larger around the top making it easier to handle a cordalette without fussing with trying to squeeze it off.

    Great Caribeaner

    Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    These are a standard size, so perfect for just about everything. I love black diamond and you can never have too many caribeaners!
