A multi-functional, lightweight and compact keylock locker, the Black Diamond Positron Screwgate carabiner’s low-profile, non-snagging nose is easy to clip and clean.

  • Deep basket reduces fumbly clips
  • Keylock nose prevents snagging
  • Locking gate reduces chance of open-gate failure
  • Easy-to-hold functional shape
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Positron vs Nitron I've used both the Positron and Nitron Lockers on every climbing trip I've been on in the last couple years side by side and rarely notice any real difference. Same size, same gate action, same screw lock. The Positron(2oz) is slightly heavier than the Nitron(1.8oz), but I've never thought, "wow this nitron is so much lighter, I'm sure glad I'm saving that 0.2oz's" My next lightweight biner will be another one of these, because the price is much better for almost the same thing (for most uses).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect no frills biner I like this biner a lot, great price, keyless and perfect for building anchors. I always keep a few on my rack or in my pack at the crag. June 20, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by lightweight locking carabiner This is a nice light weight locking carabiner for general use. I like to have a 2-3 on me for setting anchors. I've also been using one for my personal anchor... the keylock feature is really nice and prevents snags as you're unclippling. March 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome! Works great, good price, love all of them that I bought :) October 9, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great locker! This carabiner doesn't snag or catch on things with the key lock nose, it's light, and the screw gate has good, smooth action. September 26, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Classic Workhorse This is the no frills classic workhorse carabiner. Affordable, reliable and basic. If your looking for a do all carabiner at a reasonable price, this is the one. July 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Compact, Durable Carabiner Great carabiner. I use like it because it can fit easily in the pockets of my kayaking PFD. The screw gate is smooth and quick to open or close. July 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by great biner My favorite biner, I think the best small screw-lock in the industry. Light, strong, and great interior space on the inside. Can be used anywhere you need a biner. This may not be the best biner for certain specific situations, but you can still make it work if you are in a pinch. I have used this for belay, rappel, anchors, locking quickdraws, ascenders....the list goes on. They also seem to wear tougher than most. I always keep 1 as a multi-purpose back up on my rack for any problem, besides 1-2 others assigned to specific tasks. April 15, 2014
