Magnetron VaporLock / Carabiner

Magnetron VaporLock

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD 2013

Merging our light and versatile pear-shaped locking biner with the unparalleled security and ease of use of our Magnetron Technology, the Black Diamond Magnetron VaporLock Carabiner is our lightest Magnetron carabiner. Magnetron Technology uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the nose for a super-secure, interference-free closure. Ideal for long free climbs, multi-pitch routes and shedding grams from your rack without compromising security, the Magnetron VaporLock’s pear shape increases friction up to 30% when lowering or rappelling with an ATC, and its keylock nose won’t snag on ropes and slings. Weight: 56 g (2 oz)
