Black Diamond held no punches when cutting weight for their LiteForge Screwgate Carabiner-- they even removed the unnecessary letters in 'light'. Do you know how serious you have to be about 'light is right' to change the spelling of a word? It's been spelled 'light' since Old English was a commonly spoken language. Those folks over at BD really aren't messing around. Of course, light is right, so who are we to complain when realistically, things are headed where we want them to go? Not us! Durably hot forged, large enough for a clove hitch, and ergonomically shaped to make clipping with one hand easy, the LiteForge Screwgate is just like all your other carabiners, just a few grams lighter. Simple, familiar, and reliable-- the BD LiteForge Screwgate ties durable construction methods to a classic design without weighing much more than a feather.
