Black Diamond Rocklock Magnetron Description
Locking Carabiners - Black Diamond Rocklock Magnetron
The first carabiner with a magnetic auto-locking mechanism! The BD Magnetron biners are super cool, and do away with the conventional means of securing the gate, such as screwgates or twistlocks. Very simple to use, the Magnetron carabiners are a revolution in carabiner design, taking the guess work of whether you've secured your gate fully or not.
Magnets are used either side of the nose and these are released by pressing the two grippy, metal buttons on the gate closure. When the gate is closed the magnets lock automatically and can only be released by firm pressure, simultaneously applied on either side of the gate buttons. Ingenious, simple and very secure.
The Rocklock Magnetron uses the same body as the standard Rocklock biner, and introduces the magnetron auto lock closure. This is an excellent biner for belaying, making anchors or abseiling, and its keylock nose prevents snagging on slings and ropes.
