Description

Now with hot-forged HoodWire carabiners on the top and bottom, the Black Diamond HoodWire Quickdraw fuses keylock performance with wiregate functionality. From overhanging clip-ups to frigid alpine ridges, the HoodWire biner's metal hood eliminates snags when cleaning, and the wiregate design lowers the weight and resists freezing in winter conditions. The 14 mm (.5 in)Dynex dogbone provides a light, durable connection, and the StraitjacketTM insert ensures the bottom biner stays in the optimal clipping position.

  • Hot-forged HoodWire carabiner on top and bottom
  • Wiregates eliminate gate whiplash and won't freeze up
  • 14 mm (.5 in) Dynex dogbone is lightweight and durable
  • Straitjacket insert keeps bottom biner properly oriented
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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quiver of one In my mind this is the best all around draw. Of all the notchless wire gates out there, these are the smoothest to clip. Light and burly with snag free functionality. This is the only draw on my rack, and goes everywhere for sport, ice, trad, and alpine. If you want lightweight, the oz is just as good, however, the weight difference is not that important to me. (about 100 grams for a full rack or draws). Plus hand size matters. The oz are nice, but a little too small for my preference. The hood wire fits better in my hand. March 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ice and mixed The hood wire carabiners are great for ice and mixed climbing. This is the first carabiner that does not catch my glove when clipping. May 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good draw Light, easy to handle and solid construction to be trusted! Nothing missing! May 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by HoodWire rules Good for a minimalist multi-pitch rack or an onsight attempt of one of the Red River Gorge's 120-foot forearm-bursting sport routes, the HoodWire draw is the best I've found in barely-there weight and polished functionality. The biner's metal hood takes the frustrating snag factor out of cleaning the ultra steep lines we have here in the south...the biggest buzz kill of a traditional wiregate...but maintains the practically non-existant weight of a wiregate that I love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid draw I have the first edition, which only had the hoodwire's on one side of the draw and it works really well. New version with both bolt and rope side hoodwire's will be better yet. May 2, 2013
