About Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate

Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate
Climb safe and with ease using the Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate. Created using a revolutionary, patent-pending design by Black Diamond s in-house hot forge, the Gridlock eliminates the dangers of cross loading. It is specifically designed with an intuitive, easy-to-use gridlock which isolates the belay loop behind its uniquely shaped gate to keep the carabiner in its proper orientation. For maximum strength and smooth rope feeding, it is equipped with Gridlock s I-beam spine that transitions into a large, rounded rope-bearing surface. With Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate, you ll never have to deal with a shifting, cross-loaded belay carabiner again.

This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.

stays in place, never crossloads

By Todd

from Rangely, CO 81648, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate:

I use these to belay, for my young daugheters to belay each other, and for ascending ropes. They never rotate and cross load with an elegant design over the others out there. Only fault is that the bottom loop is too small to use on an alpine bod harnesses two loops. Better for wet ice climbing than the magnatron version.

The best for rope ascension and belays

By Todd

from Rangely, CO 81648, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate:

In jumaring up lines in caves, etc I have always had issues with my waist carabiner rotating while unweighted and moving up the rope, and then catching and crossloading. I had to try this as soon as I saw it and it answered all my wishes. Great for stability during rope ascents, and I love it for belaying too. My only gripe is it doesn't have a large enough bottom loop to work well on my BD alpine bod harness. For beginners to belaying etc, I also love this as it eases my mind with its lack of crossloading potential. My young daughters exclusively use this on their harness when I take them out.

Overall: exccellant

Comments about Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate:

Working at a rock gym I use it quite often and it has been great. I do not have to worry about it cross loading or coming unscrewed ever.

A Simple, Elegant Solution

By Josh

from Canada

Comments about Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate:

Love love love this carabiner. It fits well in the hand, is simple to use, while giving peace of mind that the biner will stay where it should, when it should. I would like it if BD make a larger version as well for other uses than belay.

Excellent Edition

By Levi

from Yosemite National Park, Yosemite Village, CA 95389, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate:

Recently picked up this to update an old locker and fell in love with it. I have had my gate come unlocked multiple times while belaying and now I don't have to worry about it. The magnets seem very solid and the whole piece of equipment is very well done. I'll be burning up my other lockers on rappels for an excuse to move my collection to magnetrons.
