Why We Love It
This carabiner is the one we trust for strength, security, and function.
Where We Use It
You can be sure this is in our pack for any time we're in charge of securing any belay or top rope.
A multi-functional, lightweight and compact keylock locker, the Black Diamond HotForge Screwgate carabiner features a hot-forge 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 everyday climbing missions that demand reliability and durability.
