The Black Diamond Hoodwire Carabiner is an innovative, hot-forged carabiner which blends the functionality of keylocks with the performance of a wiregate. The lightweight stainless steel wire hood design acts like a keylock for snag free clipping but is also really easy to clean out and the wire gate means the Hoodwire wont freeze up in alpine situations or have backlash issues. No design detail has been overlooked with an optimised nose angle and a wide, rope bearing radius.
