Vlad Locking Carabiner

Grivel integrated a rigging plate to the Vlad Locking Carabiner to clean up your anchor systems. Instead of having three carabiners clipped to a single bolt, the Vlad lets you clip your belay device, gear storage, and P.A.S. off the bolts for better organization. Equally innovative, the TwinGate opens with two opposing gates to automatically lock while retaining the shape and size for a standard carabiner.
  • Locking carabiner with rigging plate for a cleaner anchor system
  • TwinGate automatically locks with an innovative, intuitive design
  • Three holes accommodate belays, gear storage, and P.A.S.

Punched that sow in the face!

I've put it through the wringer

This is my favorite locking carabiner to use while fist-fighting bears. Just be careful to examine for micro fractures after a hard hit to a bear’s skull.

Great for Multipitch Climbing & Guiding

I've put it through the wringer

Whether you're climbing a multipitch in the alpine or on the valley floor, the VLAD is a great tool for easily setting up a belay, attaching a personal anchor, clipping gear slings or a backpack, or clipping a rope hook for keeping the rope organized.
