Reg: $29.95

Feel the power, the magnetic power.

The Magnetron GridLock Carabiner from Black Diamond uses a magnetic auto-locking system to keep you safe and secure. Thanks to a steel insert in the keylock nose, the two magnetic arms pull themselves close upon closure to lock the gate in place. The mechanism is easily opened with one hand and thanks to the gate design, you never have to worry about cross-loading your belay biner.

One of the safest out there, IMO

By Anson

from Provo, UT

Comments about Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Carabiner:

Just ordered this the other week and I can't say how much I love it. No biner is foolproof, now but I'm a lot less worried about a rookie belayer cross-loading the biner or forgetting to lock the gate - if it's closed, it's locked. It's easy to use with one hand. For one of the most frequently used pieces of gear, it's totally worth the price. I can't believe I bothered with screwgates for so long. From now on, all my lockers are going to be Magnetron.

Excellent, no fuss carabiner

By Eric

Comments about Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Carabiner:

I was looking for something to get away from double locking spring loaded biners. This delivered. I was a little suspicious because it's so different and looked too easy to use online. Truth is, it is easy to use. It's also very safe as far as I can tell. If your hesitant on getting one, don't be... it's well worth it

King of Locking Carabiners

By jason

from Salt Lake City, UT, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Carabiner:

I bought one of these mostly out of curiosity. I thought it would be just another silly feature. After a recent trip to the Wind Rivers, I quickly realized this biner was awesome! It's so fast to get in and out of on rappels! You just let go of the gate and your locked! No constantly checking to see if your screwgate has once again come unscrewed. You're good to go. The gridlock feature is a two step process to get on your belay loop, but if you leave it there while climbing, you don't have to worry about it again. No cross loading too which is huge!

Awesome carabiner

By Stanislav

from Ukraine

Comments about Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Carabiner:

The best Gridlock Carabiner I ever used. The highest quality and security. First time I saw it I thought that it is not very secury, but as a QA engineer I tried to open it with the rope in all possible ways. It is impossible! Now you should never forgot to screw your screwgate carabiner. It's a little bit expensive against other models, but every $ you spend on this carabiner worth it!

Magnetron Gridlock Carabiner

By GlennaA

from Undisclosed

Comments about Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Carabiner:

I first used the Gridlock Magnetron on a trip to Red Rocks last fall and loved it! A brilliant idea whose time has come. Solid and secure locking mechanism, which is easy for climbers with a smaller grip to operate with one hand. Eliminating the potential for cross loading is also genius!

Awesome

By IanS

from UK

Comments about Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock Carabiner:

Owned a regular GridLock for a while now, and whilst I didn't think it could be improved upon, the Magnetron has proved me wrong. Features all the pro's of the original Gridlock (excellent belay radius, never cross loads or inverts) and adds more. The new gate closure is super easy to use, and impossible to not do up - no more forgetting to screw the gate up. Furthermore, its far easier to use than a screwgate whilst wearing gloves, and didn't freeze up once throughout the entire Welsh winter season. However, it is still fiddly to initially align, but that is a problem will all anti cross load carabiners. Its also quite expensive, but don't let either of these minor misdemeanour's put you off, this is an awesome carabiner. A that's saying something - its never usually a piece of kit to get excited about.
