Black Diamond HotForge Bent Gate Carabiner Black
An improvement on their classic keylock carabiner design, the Black Diamond HotForge Bent Gate Carabiner is built for smooth clipping on the bolt-side of a quickdraw and features a hot-forged, lightweight construction.
The HotForge Bent Gate Carabiner is a modern take on Black Diamond's classic keylock carabiner and is a smooth operator designed for the rope-end of a quickdraw. Its bent gate is super easy to clip and the carabiner also has a huge rope-bearing surface for ultra-durability. Featuring a hot-forged construction—allowing them to remove weight where it’s not needed and add material where durability is key—the HotForge has a deeper basket for better clipping, while the hinge-end basket is flatter to ensure the webbing of quickdraws stays put. The larger rope bearing surface adds durability not only for the carabiner, but for your rope as well, while the flats on the gate reduce the likelihood of the gate opening accidentally. Finally, they’ve updated and optimized the nose geometry to allow for efficient clipping and unclipping from bolts.
