Belay carabiners don’t always behave as you might want them to. DMM came up with a special clip that once locked in position prevents cross loading occurring. Also, the  clip can only be locked if the screwgate has been properly closed first. 

The Aero is a great all-round belay biner with anti snag keylock nose, extremely generous  11.3mm rope radius and is  also a very strong biner The extra bulk of the Aero means greater resistance to wear and excellent heat dissipation.  

The Boa is large enough (but surprisingly light) to accommodate several knots and has a very wide gate  opening.  The large size of the Boa makes it particularly easy to handle. 

The Locksafe version of the Boa features a three-stage locking mechanism on the gate. This means the the gate will always be locked when closed.

The ‘horn’ on the Rhino prevents assisted locking belay devices rotating off the top  bar and on to the spine reducing the risk of cross loading, it also  works well with  normal belay devices. 

The Helix is a full size HMS that provides a super strong belay biner with plenty of internal space for rigging. Features: I beam Back, Ergonomic shape, Keylock nose, High strength thimble, Round bar profile. 

The Black Diamond Magnetron GridLock uses the magnets to reinvent the auto-locking carabiner. Using two magnetic arms in the gate and a steel insert in the carabiner's keylock nose to create an ultra-secure, self-clearing and redundant locking mechanism.

The Gridlock shares the magnetic locking features of its cousin, but with the added benefit of a cross-loading ‘isolation’ feature, which ‘intuitively captures the belay loop’ and locks it in place when the gate is closed.

The DMM Alpha Sport is probably the most ‘clip friendly’ biner ever made. The bent gate, with its flared-out barrel shape works in perfect harmony with the kinked and groove-patterned back bar.  It just feels so right, handles so well, and most importantly the rope always goes in first time.

The DMM Shadow is a truly excellent biner with I-Beam construction, and a superb combination of function, weight and strength .The inside of the biner has a deep basket to ensure that the rope is guided towards the spine for added safety.

The DMM Aero combines superb handling and functionality with exceptional strength and safety features. The robustness of this hot forged, solid gate biner makes it well suited to sport climbing and use on carrot bolts. It also has a large (24mm) gate opening and a clean nose design to reduce snagging.

The DMM Phantom is an incredibly light quickdraw, which seeing how many you have to carry can considerably lighten the weight of your rack. Despite their light weight the phantom is still a strong carabiner rated at 23kN. .
