    Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate Carabiner - The Gridlock Screwgate Carabiner by Black Diamond is perfect for any climber who is concerned about 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. With its revolutionary, patent-pending design made possible by hot forge, it eliminates the dangers of cross loading. 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. When your ready to soar to new heights on your next adventure, don't forget the Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate Carabiner.

    This is one of the first Carabiners that I have owned and thus far it has been easy to use and my favorite. I have used regular carabiners and would choose this one over those. This one works well and the gate is large enough to be effective in multiple situations. Comfortable to use and grips well over standard carabiners.




    I was having issues using a normal Carabiner with an ATC Guide and GRIGRI at times; cross load. So to be a better belayer and to be SAFE, I got this product. It's very lightweight and easy to use, but I found using a grigri the normal way could lead to cross load. To avoid this, I flipped the gridlock around so the grigri is in the narrow area. Other than that, it is a must have but wish it was auto-locked.

    Takes a minute to figure, a couple of uses to get proficient with setting up & a huge leap in safety. Cross loading is a thing of the past when using this carabiner. ALWAYS check, do not use this as crutch & become complacent! It works as intended, it is always my recommendation that folks use this on their harness in every teaching situation wether a new partner or a formal workshop.
