Black Diamond Magnetron Gridlock Belay Karabiner Description

  • Brand : Black Diamond
  • Season :
  • Code : BDI GLMAG
  • Packaged Weight : 0.12KG
  • A version of Black Diamond's Gridlock Karabiner that locks with magnets rather than a screwgate!

    The innovative GridLock shape traps your harnesses belay loop to eliminate cross-loading and "Magnetron Technology" uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the karabiner's keylock nose to create a secure, self-clearing locking mechanism that can be easily used with either hand.

    In addition to the obvious advantage that it cannot be left unlocked, it should be especially useful for winter climbers as it is less likely to freeze up than a normal screwgate.

    • Hot-forged construction.
    • Innovative gate design uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the nose for super-secure, interference-free closure.
    • Keylock nose prevents snagging.
    • One-hand operable.
    • Unique shape isolates belay loop to eliminate cross-loading.
    • I-Beam spine transitions into a rounded, large rope-bearing surface.

    There is an interesting if rather strange review of the Magnetron on the Australian website Vertical Life.

    External dimensions: 11.5cm x 7cm. Gate opening 21mm. Weight 78g.

    Krab Strengths: Closed 22kN, Open 8kN, Cross-loaded  7kN (not that it should ever get cross-loaded!).
