With its revolutionary, patent-pending design made possible by Black Diamond's in-house hot forge, the Black Diamond GridLock Screwgate eliminates the dangers of cross loading. Designed specifically for belaying, the intuitive, easy-to-use GridLock isolates the belay loop behind its uniquely shaped gate, thereby keeping the carabiner in its proper orientation. The GridLock's I-beam spine transitions into a large, rounded rope-bearing surface for maximum strength and smooth rope feeding. Simply put, you'll never have to deal with a shifting, cross-loaded belay carabiner again.

The DMM Belay Master 2 is a belay karabiner that has safety at its heart. The nylon crossgate means that you can be sure that the screwgate is locked properly if the crossgate is closed. It stops the chance of the screw undoing and retains the krab in the correct orientation so not weakening of the system can occur.
The new Ultralight Asymmetric Curve Nuts have an asymmetric taper for greater stability in flaring placements. They are awesome for pin scars and the straight-sided taper makes it easy to judge placement quality. Also, they are 30% lighter than the competition, have anodized heads, and color-coded collars to match the cam colors.
Engineered for the light and fast climber that’s counting every gram, the MiniWire Rackpack features six of the lightest, fully-functional carabiners in the Black Diamond line-up. Each carabiner is colour-coded to match Black Diamond's Camalots for easy identification while racking.
The iconic, symmetrical Oval has stood the test of time, and will now remain essential to your rack due to the new Keylock snag-free design. With its large rope-bearing surface, improved ease of use, and smooth uniform shape that reduces carabiner shift, the Oval will continue to get the job done on the world’s hardest big walls.
