    Great, Light Locker

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND VaporLock Carabiner:

    One of the best, lightest lockers out there. Great for anchors, won't freeze up. Reliable. Go get a bunch of them.

    Great all-around Locking Carabiner

    By TommyC

    from Undisclosed

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND VaporLock Carabiner:

    I use this locker for my ATC and GriGri and it's a great all around locker. I'm more a fan of screwgates because they simpler to use and force you to pay more attention to the belay setup. This one is super light and just works like you want it to.

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND VaporLock Carabiner:

    A buddy kept recommending these to me and I kept thinking, "yea, how much better can they really be?" Now that I own a few, I understand why he kept bugging me about it. They are quick, light and about as easy to use as a non-locker.

    Great Alpine Locker

    By John

    from Bellingham, WA

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND VaporLock Carabiner:

    Nicely sized HMS carabiner. Base accommodates clove hitches, munters, and super munters well, especially for rope diameters smaller than 10mm - which seem to be the norm these days. Nice and lightweight. 4 Vapors are the same weight as 3 Mini Pears, giving me an extra locker on my alpine rack. 30% extra friction, as BD claims, is great for technical climbing, but not as desirable in crevasse rescue applications where loss of input force due to friction is a big concern. For rescue applications, or basic glacier travel, consider a carabiner with a more rounded stock.

    Great Locker

    By Eric

    from Trinidad, Trinidad and Tobago

    Comments about BLACK DIAMOND VaporLock Carabiner:

    Good light locker. Size falls in between the Mini-pear and the Positron. Really can be used anywhere you need a locker; anchors, belay, rappel. Rope surface about a mm less across than Mini-pear, and 1mm more than Positron.

      Comments about BLACK DIAMOND VaporLock Carabiner:

      A great locking biner. clove hitches hold tight, may be too tight some times. I would rather have that then a creeping rope. It has a good size gate opening for a biner of this size.Great for tying into anchors. will buy more.

      This my favorite locker because it's light, works well with gloves and does not freeze. It's the best all around locker in the market.
