HotForge Screwgate Carabiner
A multi-functional, lightweight, and compact keylock locker, the Black Diamond HotForge Screwgate carabiner features a hot-forged construction—allowing us to remove weight where it’s not needed and add material where durability is key—and a low-profile, non-snagging nose that’s easy to clip and clean. Ideal for use at belays, top-roping, or whenever you find yourself in need of a trusty locker, the HotForge accommodates a clove hitch and is built for every day climbing missions that demand reliability and durability.
