Black Diamond Oval Carabiner.
The Black Diamond Oval Carabiner is a tool you can depend on during any climb. With an open gate strength of 6 kN and a closed gate strength, thrice as much, this carabiner is built for greater durability. Its symmetrical design helps maintain the balance, when the line is taut, while the uniform shape of the carabiner prevents a shifting of the line, when its loaded. A wide 0.71 in. gate opening means that you don't have to be good with a noose, to get the safety rope through it. It could, however,, save your life as it accounts for, in the margin of error. So when you want to take on that big wall and conquer it, be sure to have the Black Diamond Oval Carabiner in your climbing rack!
This product can only be shipped to U.S. addresses.
The Oval Carabiner by Black Diamond is our tried-and-true classic. Symmetrical design resists etrier shift on big walls and is ideal for reversed-gate biner pairing. Good for use as a carabiner brake and for racking nuts and iron.
A favorite on gear racks for years, the Black Diamond Oval carabiner is a fine all-around choice.
Big wall vets swear by Ovals since their smooth, uniform shape reduces carabiner "shift" when easing onto sketchy placements. Even if you're not gearing up for the Captain, your rack should include some Ovals because they are great for racking gear, clipping funky old bolt hangers or rigging anchors.

These oavals can't get any more basic. When I'm setting up a top rope or belay anchor I don't need to be messing around with useless features so I pick the BD oaval. It racks well, is durable, and classic. What more could you ask?
These are great for starting out top roping, quickly increasing your trad rack, or if you can afford it to use as a bail biner. I like to keep a few of them around incase I get turned away from a route.
Simple product. Trusted brand. When you get to the top of the route and theres just a chain or the carabiner up there is rusted shut. Take this oval of your belt and your good to go.
