Description

With six hot-forged HoodWire carabiners color-coded to match your Camalots, C3's or X4's, the Black Diamond HoodWire Rackpack makes it easy to find the right piece when you have a big rack and the pump clock is ticking. By employing an innovative stainless steel wire hood, our HoodWire Technology gives these biners the snag-free benefits of a keylock with the weight savings of a wiregate.

  • Hot-forged construction
  • Patent-pending stainless steel wire hood design doesn't snag, eases clipping and cleaning
  • Lightweight and excellent size for all-around use
  • Does not freeze up in alpine conditions
  • Anodized in Camalot, C3 and X4 colors for easy identification
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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great visual clue They make finding the right cam a bit quicker. Which for me, is great! November 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by AWESOME I love these things. I bought this rackpack to go with my brand new double rack of BD Camalots and quickly thought "I should have bought the OZ Rackpack." I told myself to use the Hoodwires on the cams as that's my my quickdraws and extendable runners are rigged with. After a good bit of use in NM, CO and OR I decided to lighten my rack with the OZ...turns out that I don't notice much and either way I'm just happy to have the functionality of the hood. Bottom line: These biners are so easy to use and they don't snag on webbing, slings, nuts, or anything else. I hate using hoodless biners now...hate them. I LOVE THESE! October 10, 2013
