Wild Country's superlight screwgates are the perfect fit for any rack - light, slick and all with keylock noses. The Neon, Ion and Titan are three of the smoothest operators around.

Neon Keylock Screwgate - £12
At only 43 grams, the Neon Keylock screw is one of the world's lightest keylock screwgates and a screwgate that's close to being as light as many modern snaps. Achieved using a combination of the proven I beam technology and a little lateral thinking, the Neon Screwgate significantly adds to the armoury of the modern climber by allowing more safe screwgates to be carried without a weight penalty. The Neon keeps a very usable gate clearance, and with its small neat Keylock nose aiding access, it makes clipping and unclipping no toil – even with gloves.
An amazing step forward and a true weight breakthrough, at 43 grams the Neon Keylock screw ditches the weight of a screwgate making for safer climbing with less penalties!!
Weight: 43 grams / 1.52 oz - Gate clearance - 16mm
Making this easy clipper even smoother and enhancing it's all around status as the best basic biner available, the original Titan gets a Keylock nose. The new Titan Keylock is an updated classic.
And in adapting the bestselling Wild Country screwgate ever we kept it simple to make this an even more effective model. And by combining our wider open D shape with a no-hook nose we have a great all rounder at a good weight – and a brilliant price.
Features: Hot forged, Keylock Nose, individually proof loaded to 10kN, individually inspected, Hi strength thimble resists gate inward pressure, therefore adding safety. 7075 Alloy, 3 Sigma Rated, CE EN 12275, UIAA.
Our code name for this biner was 'Neon Big' and the Ion is exactly that – a bigger version of our mega-successful, hyperlight, Keylock screwgate biner.The Ion is based on the same design but simply 'scaled-up' to give a bit more space creating a more all round biner. Yet by only adding 7 grams there's a minimal penalty for the extra room and the Ion stays in that hyperlight category. Another Wild Country cracker this biner just begs to be used on all your hardest ascents!!!
Weight: 50 grams / 1.76 oz - Gate Clearance - 19mm
