Black Diamond Keylock Gate
The keylock gate uses the geometry of the pocket of the gate to interface with the 'nose' of the carabiner to provide its strength when the gate is closed. The advantage of this design is that it alleviates the chance of the hooked part of the carabiner to get hung up on something (like a bolt hanger, Stopper wire or sling). Nose hooked carabiners are surprisingly weak, and it's by far the most common scenario for carabiner failure in the field.
Black Diamond Positron Quickdraw Review
"Due to the keylock gate design, the Black Diamond Positron one of the easiest carabiners to unclip from bolt hangers on steep routes. Also, the keylock makes this a great carabiner to rack nuts and gear on (it won't get hung up as easily on a sling). Other than that, this is just a great work horse piece of gear. It's not light but it works in a variety of situations, is easy to clip and handle, and gets the job done." -Chris McNamara ⋅ Founder and Editor-in-Chief, OutdoorGearLab
