The Black Diamond HotForge Bent Gate carabiner is a modern take on their classic keylock carabiner. A smooth operator designed for the rope-end of a quickdraw, it has a huge rope-bearing surface for ultra-durability with a bent gate that is super easy to clip. Featuring a hot-forged construction, which allows weight to be removed from where it's not needed and material to be added where durability is key, the HotForge has a deeper basket for better clipping, while the hinge-end basket is flatter to ensure the webbing of quickdraws stays put. The larger rope bearing surface adds durability not only for the carabiner, but for your rope as well, while the flats on the gate reduce the likelihood of the gate opening accidentally. Finally, the nose geometry has been updated and optimised to allow for efficient clipping and unclipping from bolts.
