Best Uses

    Comments about Black Diamond 1020725 BLACK DIAMOND HoodWire Carabiner:

    Very similar to the Black Diamond Oz carabiners but slightly heavier and slightly larger.
    The main difference is that they are thicker, accounting for the weight difference and a strength increase. Hoodwire's strength is 24/8/8 kN vs. the Oz's 20/7/7 kN. But both are plenty strong.
    Note that the biners curve very thin along the top between the gate and the spine, so I wouldn't use these for a garda hitch.

      Comments about Black Diamond 1020725 BLACK DIAMOND HoodWire Carabiner:

      I use this carabiner for hooking my car keys to my beltloop so I will have it with me all the time. I take it anytime I go backpacking or whitewater kayaking. It works great for clipping drybags in the boat or for use in a 2:1 or 3:1 Z-drag pulley system for pinned kayaks. I'm not a climber but I bet its great for that as well being what it's designed for and all.
