Black Diamond VaporLock Magnetron Carabiner

The Black Diamond VaporLock Magentron Carabiner is an ultralight belay and rappel carabiner that’s ideal for free climbing and trad climbing. A combination of quick operating, low weight and safety make the Black Diamond VaporLock Magnetron Carabiner the optimal choice when you’re going fast and light on difficult routes. Black Diamond’s innovative magnetron auto-locking system consists of two magnetic bars in the gate and steel insert in the nose that’s super-secure, safe and easy to operate with one hand. Plus, the keylock nose prevents snagging when clipping and the pear shape increases friction when belaying by up to 30% when you use an ATC belay device.

Favourite carabiner

This carabiner is super convenient & easy to use also when teaching a beginner you never have to worry about them not locking it.
The mechanism is smooth and can be operated with one hand which makes it convenient to use whilst climbing, not to mention it looks sleek

Easy to use

I find this autolock one of the easiest to use. Being left handed, it is not as easy to use other auto lock one handed. but this one does. I wish it would be propose in different sizes

Innovative but expensive

I've tried many autolock biners before, twist lock, ball lock and twin-gate too.
I found that in the gym each one of them are usable but in the crag is a total different situation. It's not easy to operate left handed, building an anchor one-handed, operate them in gloves.
Twin gate biners are better but they are not snag free. Clearly, there is something drawback around those stuffs.
DB did a great job, the problems I mentioned before now are solved, the biner is beautiful but it comes for a price. If you're Jay-Z rich, take it, you'll love it, still I better like screwgates.
