Thanks to its innovative stainless steel wire hood, the hot-forged Black Diamond HoodWire carabiner fuses keylock functionality with wiregate performance. This lightweight, unique design makes for hassle-free, snag-free clipping and cleaning, plus it won't freeze up in alpine conditions or suffer from gate whiplash. Thanks to its hot forged construction, no detail on the HoodWire has been overlooked, including an optimized nose angle and a wide, rope-bearing basket radius.

  • Hot-forged construction
  • Patent-pending stainless steel wire hood eliminates snagging
  • Wire gate won't freeze in alpine conditions
  • Lightweight and designed for all-around use


HoodWire Technology brings keylock functionality to a wiregate carabiner and is now available on our legendary, redesigned Oz carabiner. Its unique, stainless steel wire hood is a simple, strong design that won’t snag when unclipping. The wire hood doesn’t trap debris that could cause an open-gate failure, and protects the nose from wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Funcionality at its best This Carabiner has become my go to for mixed routes and trad, not to mention they work great to hang your ice ax on when not in use. Using them is easy and they don't hang up like others. They are perfect when using slings or quickdraws. I have one attached to every cam on my rack. They look awesome to. May 21, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sticking with hooded wiregates Compared to the Oz, it has a larger gate opening, and fits in my hand a bit more comfortably. However, this comes at a (albeit slight) weight penalty, so choose what you want (maybe get to a retailer and hold them both before you decide). I used one of each for an extendable draw (to stick with my color coding system - hopefully soon we'll be able to buy singles of individual colors). March 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Easy to use. I'm a newer climber and my runners are combined with these and the OZ. Both of these carabiners are easy to use and are well thought out. August 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great carabiner I have had the opertunity to us these carabiners on both ice routes and multi pitch rock and they work flawless March 26, 2014
