Intuitive and secure, Black Diamond®'s Lockdown Leash uses a unique slipknot configuration for superb ice tool security.
This non-detachable leash uses a unique slipknot configuration to provide secure attachment when weighted. A pull loop on each leash can be hooked and pulled on either the hammer or adze to release a climbers hand when placing protection. The Lockdown Leash is a simple, functional leash that provides solid security and comfort.
The Black Diamond Lockdown Leash features a slipknot configuration that tightens when weighted and smoothly releases with a simple pull, plus the padded wrist strap provides all-day comfort and even weight distribution.

This leash works well and is infinitely adjustable. It is pretty easy to use but the loop that you use to get in and out of it is pretty big and could get caught on things. I use this on a mountaineering axe but this would work well with ice tools that don't have specific leashes. One nice feature is the buckle that keeps the leash from getting too tight.
This is a fantastic leash for mountaineering. Its very secure and comfy. Although for leading it be tricky if your tool has an adze. It a huge step up from the old twist leash I previously had. Its fully adjustible, and should work for any technical tool.
The leash is one of the shortest leashes that can be purchased. This could be seen as a positive or negative thing; the loop has a tendency to loosen and slip off the wrist.
