Black Diamond Positron Screwgate Reviews:


good locker but minor snag

These are very nice lockers, relatively low weight and a nice size. I bought it to use on the end of my daisy chain and it works very well for that with one exception. When the gate snaps shut it cuts the keylock nose and creates a bur that snags the dyneema daisy chain. You might want to keep a small file handy to take care of this if it happens with yours. Both that I own have this issue.
I am still considering purchasing more for anchor building despite this minor flaw.

Love it!

Mostly use this as a key chain that i lock on to my belt loop. As a motorcyclist I want to secure my keys to anything I can and this is a great way to do so. Its also a great back up for my climbing set up in case i lose one. Had it for a few years now and it still looks and works great, just like new. The locking mechanism is easy to use, second nature, and is very secure.

I can haz Black Diamond Carabiner?

Do your research and compare! This is the best carabiner on the market for the price, quality and strength. Only con that I have noticed is when the carabiner is upside down and the gate is open, the screw gate can sometimes slide down and block the gate from closing. Only happened to me once, but just because I wasn't paying attention and being sloppy. Even with that I would hands down trust the device with my life.

Brilliant, as good as it gets.

These are the Mercedes-Benz of locking 'biners. Only Petzl can compete, but theirs are all bigger, bulkier, heavier (and certainly appropriate for plenty of applications). These represent the great majority of my locking 'biner collection, due to their smooth action, snagless, keylock nose, and perfect size. BD's Quicksilver screwgate is about the same, but without that great snagless nose. If you can afford these Positrons, get them!

My favorite utility locking biner

BD positron lockers are my favorite utility locking biners. It's compact, lightweight for a locking biner, and easy to use with its keylock nose. Other than belaying (I use dedicated belay lockers), I use it almost everywhere that calls for a locker: backing up a rappel, connecting an autoblock belay device to the anchor, anchoring myself on a multi-pitch climb, hooking up to an ascender, etc.

Simple workhorse carabiner

While there are no special features about this locker, it is relatively light, small, and inexpensive. This makes it a great carabiner to add multiples of for anchors, pas systems, and any other points you need security with. Not a wide gate so not great for belaying.

Great Medium-Sized Utility Biner

This is the biner I use to clip my personal anchor system into the anchor. I also use it to anchor myself in both the indoor gym as well as outdoors. It's just a great utility biner at the right price.

I bought this around Christmas when I was starting to climb more. Before I just worked C.O.P.E. course's and we used steel Carabiner's. This Carabiner is 10 time better than the steel ones and weighs only a 1/4 the weight.

Love 'em!!!

I have two of these and I love them! Lightweight, strong, quick and easy to use. Gate opens wide and screws securely (assuming you lock down). I have never had one open on me when properly secured. Overall great biner!
TxClimber at REI on 04/04/2011

Sweet 'biner

Sweet all around utility biner. Great for just about everything except belaying. I prefer a larger, rounded biner for that. These are great for setting up top-ropes, building anchors, etc... and when they are on sale its even better
