Disapointed with the lack of info

By ALTAVE

from Sao Jose dos Campos, SP - Brazil

Comments about Black Diamond Oval Wiregate:

I have an application where the carabiner must enter perfectly (just fit) in a eyelet. As there was no such information on the width (diameter of the metal) of the carabiners I bought 4 different types to try. Well the carabiners arrived in the right time and perfect conditions (as always) but none of them could fit my eyelet. It is not only about the money, but because I live in Brazil it is not an easy task to get Black Diamond's products. I would be very thankful if you could help me. My eyelet measures 12mm (inner diameter) and is 16mm long. I need a carabiner that can fit there. I would say it would have a 9mm with to do so. It would also have to be 22kN resistant. Photos attached.

Great racking biner

By Steve

from Vermont, USA

Comments about Black Diamond Oval Wiregate:

Ovalwires are great for keeping your multitude of stoppers or slings organized and under control. At least that's what I use them for. NIce and light, but still holds a lot.

      Comments about Black Diamond Oval Wiregate:

      This is a great biner for trad climbing.

      Pros:
      1. Thin enough to get through chain links
      2. Great symmetry, and easily reversable to get opposite and opposed "psuedo-locker" security. Great for biner brakes too.

      Cons:
      1. About the only con with this biner is that it can flip on you... ie, when you have this on a trad draw, it can spin so that you have to re-orient the biner before you clip it to gear, and potentially also re-orient the hanging biner before clipping the rope in as well.
      2. More difficult to tell orientation of the biner hanging due to it's symmetry. Obviously a modified D is much easier to spot at a glance.

      All that said, I think this is one of the best biners out there for trad climbing.

        Love the weight, easy opening, and handling. Only drawback is that wired pro can get stuck in the gate notch. Otherwise, a great way to lighten the load.
