Black Diamond, Magnetron Rocklock and Gridlock, carabiner

It wasn’t broken, but Black Diamond found a way to make a carabiner better—and safer—anyway. Instead of latching shut via a conventional twist-lock or screw-gate design, the company’s Magnetron RockLock (pictured) and GridLock use magnets to hold tight. The result is a ’biner that is just as strong  but, because you operate it with one hand, is much easier to use.
