Rated 5 out of 5 by from When they restock this, quick, buy all of them before that other guy does... They're nice little biners. Nice, cheap little biners. Nice cheap, Black Diamond quality, little biners. I wouldn't belay off of it (just because it's a bit on the small side), but setting anchors, jerry-rigging slack lines, going overkill to secure your chalk bag, it functions well for all of that. ,,,,I can't let it get away completely unscathed (even though I am confident it will always help me do that...), so here's some quirks. The screwgate is a little sticky sometimes, and it occasionally requires at least 2 fingers to unstick... But that being said, you can still do it with 2 fingers very easily. I'm gonna stop before I hit thin ice...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A solid 'biner for the price, great for anchors This not-exactly small, not-exactly big biner is a main component of my anchor system and bomber for setting up a top-rope (John Long's quad rig with double-looped cordelette, two BDs up top at the bolts, and two clipped in to 3 of the 4 strands at the bottom for the power point--such a strong rig with great equalization). I also use them with girth hitched slings (obvi) for setting up the rap after a sport route.,,,,According to the trusty digital scale, these biners weigh in at 55.6 g or 1.96 oz. That's almost a full half gram off the advertised weight. Wowee... So, uh, shave some weight off your rack, too?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Somehow, better than others in it's class It looks just like any other non-HMS keylock locking carabiner, but for some reason, it just works better. I don't know if it's the low angle curve from the top of the spine to the nose, or the trustworthy spin lock we've all come to expect from Black Diamond, or what, but its just easier to clip in and out. Compared to an ultra-tech, its can hold and let loose more dyneema material, it can unhook from a bolt more freely. I know it's not really a big deal, if it locks and has 20+ Kn strength, it'll get the job done, but this is another great product from BD, and that's my review.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like little locking light liquid lurking carabiner the last two adjectives are misleading, but they also started with an "L". These are pretty good biners for various uses, but they are restricted due to their size. You can use them for belay/rappel with a figure 8 but probly not with an ATC since there is not enough room for the rope to run through it smoothly. I use them to hook the slings to bolts for TR anchors as well as attaching a prussik when rappeling. The screwgwate is very smooth with minimal noise. They are great BD quality products at a great price, definitely recommend em

Rated 1 out of 5 by from i think these are total crap I grooved one out redirecting a hanging belay one time. I lowered one climber a few time while cleaning and climbing some harder multi pitch and put a serious grove in one of these lockers. i thought it might just be that one but it has happened consistently. I used one for a top rope for some clients it grooved out in a day. for the price its a damn good key lock biner but the longevity of the alloy is not so good and for that i must say its crap because not matter how cheap it is, if i need to replace it several times it sucks.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome all around biner This is my go to biner for everything that I need a locking biner for. Lightweight on the harness and a great price to go along with it. The only negatives I can think of is that the biner is a little bit on the small side and does not have a round stock. Difficult to pop a clove hitch and munter hitch in. Especially the munter as the biner does not allow the knot to pop back and forth. non Round stock makes it not ideal for setting up a top autolock belay with a ATC Guide, so have to carry an extra rocklock for that purpose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for Anchors Got a few of these because they were so damn cheap. I picked up them for anchoring but thought I might be able to use them as a belay carabiner as well. I wouldn't recommend them for belaying, they feel a bit crowded with a single rope running through. However for anchors, these things are sweet.,,,,I did use some dry graphite lubricate on the threading for 2 of these when I first got them. The machining felt a little rough for my tastes but I'm an engineer and a snob. Take my advice with a grain of salt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great biner for your buck and needs I bought this carabiner a little while back now and use it as my secondary belay-biner when I need my BD Rocklock for something else. However, I like using this one for holding gear and anchoring when prepping the rappel after/before cleaning a route (depending on if I led it or not obviously). I personally like the larger biner's, which is the only reason this one gets four stars instead of five, but I do have to say that the Positron's smaller size and thin body makes it a go-to option for personal anchoring. I do plan on buying a few more of these since they are reliable, the screw-gate is smooth and doesn't stick much, and they are really fairly priced. One last thing is that there size means that they won't take up as much space in your pack as their larger cousins. Hope this review helps you guys in your decision.
