CAMPS Photon carabiner is the lightest full size locking carabiner in the world at 36 grams or 1.3 ounces. Designed with utility in mind, the Photon carabiner provides a large gate opening (24 millimeters) for easy release while its keylock closure mechanism allows for quick retrieval from gear loops and climbing routes. While being the lightest carabiner, it is also one of the strongest. Major axis permits 21 kilonewtons, minor axis 7 kilonewtons and open gate 9 kilonewtons.


  • The lightest keylocking carabiner in the world!
  • New for 2011
  • Rock Climbing, Racking

As the lightest keylocking carabiner in the world, C.A.M.P.'s Photon carabiner marks an evolutionary advance in carabiner design. Not only is it the lightest, it is also full-size! Its radical design creates a large gate opening for easy clipping and the keylock closure is great for plucking draws from gear loops and cleaning overhanging sport routes. The Photon Bent Gate is the ultimate rope-end carabiner for overhanging sport routes. Its aggressive design is optimized for quick clips and the keylocking closure and large gate opening make for cuss-free cleaning.
With each new season comes a fresh case of the grabbies. Satisfy your urge for gear and grab a CAMP USA Photon Carabiner or three. Heck, they only weigh 36 grams, so you may not even realize you have multiples until you take them out and count them at the crag. With a generous gate opening and burly strength ratings, the Photon comes in handy for setting anchors or just racking your other gear.

CAMP Photon Carabiner Review:


I use straight gate Photons for gear racking. It's light and big enough to rack a full set of nuts.
Also I temporary replace bolt side binners of Black Diamond Oz QD with them for easy cleaning on sport routes (and return back BD Oz for trad). The last weekend I slipped off a face and took a pretty deep (about 10 feet) lead fall. An improvised hand made draw held it without any visible damage (anyway I retired the binner to be for-nuts-racking-only). Thus despite a "fragile" look and feel CAMP Photon is strong enough to hold lead fall.
