Black Diamond Magnetron

Black Diamond Magnetron

Conventional carabiners lock via a screw toggle or spring gate. They're trusted mechanisms but require two hands to operate. The Black Diamond Magnetron reimagines the system: Magnets keep the arm in place; pinching two latches releases it. The magnets never lose their attraction and are a stronger, quicker system for securing climbers. [$25; blackdiamondequipment.com]
