The Black Diamond Gridlock Screwgate is a revolutionary, patent-pending belay biner design that solves the orientation issue—never deal with a shifting, cross-loaded belay carabiner again. The GridLock’s isolation feature intuitively captures the belay loop and prevents cross-loading.
With its revolutionary, patent-pending design made possible by our in-house hot forge, the Black Diamond GridLock Screwgate eliminates the dangers of cross loading. Designed specifically for belaying, the intuitive, easy-to-use GridLock isolates the belay loop behind its uniquely shaped gate, thereby keeping the carabiner in its proper orientation. The GridLock's I-beam spine transitions into a large, rounded rope-bearing surface for maximum strength and smooth rope feeding. Simply put, you'll never have to deal with a shifting, cross-loaded belay carabiner again.

Less worry with your belayingBy: Dale Baldwin on 1 December 2016These guys are a little fiddly to get into the right place but once settled in don't give you any trouble. I've used with both ATC and Grigri and it works great with either and lowers if not removes the opportunity to cross load and fail.
