GridLock / Belay Carabiner

GridLock

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD

OutDoor INDUSTRY AWARD

Carabiners are an integral part of Black Diamond’s identity, history and culture. With more than 50 years of design experience dating back to Chouinard Equipment, our roots in climbing gear run deep. Today we continue our relentless pursuit of design innovation, seeking out new ways to improve carabiner function and ease of use. The Black Diamond GridLock means you’ll never deal with a shifting, cross-loaded belay carabiner again. Its hot-forged, radical design has an isolation feature that intuitively captures the belay loop and prevents cross-loading. Weight: 76 g
