Blair Coxwrote a review of Black Diamond HotWire Carabiner on March 22, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I just recently bought 4 of these carabiners. They are high quality and the wire gate is stiff enough to be safe but soft enough to be convenient. They have a 24 kilonewton major axis strength. I decided to look up the conversion of kilonewtons to pounds: these carabiners have a weight limit of over 5,000 pounds! You could support the weight of a VW bug on one of these things! That’s amazing!
