Description

We connected a hot-forged Nitron straight-gate biner and a hot-forged HotWire carabiner to create the light, versatile and smooth clipping Black Diamond HotWire Quickdraw. The snag-free keylock Nitron takes the hassle out of cleaning routes, and the HotWire's large rope-bearing surface and flat gate-to-rope interface make for smooth clipping in any climbing application. The light, durable 14 mm (.5 in) Dynexdogbone also features a Straitjacket insert to keep the bottom biner in the optimal clipping position.

  • Hot-forged Nitron straight-gate carabiner on top and hot-forged HotWire carabiner on bottom
  • HotWire's wiregate eliminates gate flutter and won't freeze up
  • Nitron's keylock nose eases clipping and cleaning
  • Flat gate-to-rope interface
  • 14 mm (.5 in) Dynex dogbone is light, durable and easy to grab
  • Straitjacket insert keeps bottom carabiner 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 1 reviewer.
Rated 5 out of 5 by WaaWaa WeeWaa I've had a couple of HotWire quickdraws for a few years now, part of a set of five I broke up and shared with a buddy. Well, I should have been more greedy, because I love these puppies and want the other three draws back! I crag a fair bit, as well as put up lots of new routes, so I ask a lot from my draws, from the standard clipping-protection scenario to hanging every manner of junk off of them. Anyway, even after a few years of battering, the HotWire Quickdraw is still a key player in my rack. The dogbone is still looking great, the gate action on both biners (bolt-side Nitron biner and rope-side HotWire binder) is still killer, and grooving on the rope-side biner is minimal. These are big, easy-grab, easy-clip, hard-wearing clippers that weigh next to nothing. WaaWaa WeeWaa—is nice. I like! May 17, 2013
