Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate Carabiner
Back for 2017 with new colours, the Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate Carabiner is a patent-pending belay carabiner with a unique shape that prevents shifting and cross loading. The Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate Carabiner isolates the belay loop behind the gate so there is absolutely no chance of if flipping or shifting, while the screwgate opening is easy to use and super-safe. Genius.

Its great and you can't complain about the price.
It was a bit confusing with the grigri but if you flip the biener upside down it works fantastic.
Even though it doesn't look like it the edges are round and can't create sharp edges.
The screwgate is HORRIBLE! I don't know if the model I bought but the screwgate is REALLY hard to screw and "squeaks".
Did not expect that from a BD product ... not sure if it's a "one of" error as i do not have access to another carabiner to check.
Great carabiner for belaying
Perfetc for belaying and roping up for glacier walk
