Black Diamond VaporLock Magnetron Carabiner


Magnets, how do they work? Without getting into a materials engineering lecture, this lightweight auto-locker gives you a triple action mechanism that is quick and easy to use. With a simple squeeze of the gate the carabiner opens smoothly and effortlessly. Once you've slid your rope past the unsnaggable keylock, just release your fingers and watch the gate snap securely shut faster than you can say, "on belay." With magnetic latches on both sides of the keylock, you can be sure that the VaporLock Magnetron won't open unless you want it to, even if you happen to bash one of the buttons into the rock face. Not willing to forfeit their pride in lightweight climbing tools, Black Diamond engineered this carabiner to weigh in at a mere 56g so it won't feel out of place with the rest of your ultralight, Italian-engineered ski mountaineering equipment.
