Combining maximum security and ease of use like never before, the Black Diamond Magnetron Rocklock uses the power of magnets to reinvent the auto-locking carabiner. Magnetron Technology uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the carabiner's keylock nose to create an ultra-secure, self-clearing and redundant locking mechanism that can easily be used with either hand. Our classic RockLock shape is ideal for belaying, making anchors or rappelling, and its keylock nose prevents snagging on slings and ropes.

  • Innovative gate design uses two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the nose for super secure, interference-free closure
  • Keylock nose prevents snagging
  • Easy operation with either hand
  • Square hinge end holds belay loop securely in place
  • Slightly curved spine maximizes gate opening
  • Weight :  87 g (3.1 oz)
  • Closed Gate Strength :  24 kN (5,395 lbf)
  • Open Gate Strength :  7 kN (1,574 lbf)
  • Minor Axis Strength :  7 kN (1,574 lbf)
  • Gate Opening :  21 mm (0.83 in)
Hot Forging vs. Cold Forging

HOT FORGING VS. COLD FORGING

We use two different forging methods to build carabiners—hot and cold forging. Each has its benefits and using both allows us to achieve the best possible shape, size and strength for each carabiner’s intended use. HOT FORGING, a process where both the rod stock and forge dies are heated, allows us to “move” the metal, creating more intricate shapes, such as our GridLock and Oz biners.
