The Black Diamond Jivewire is a lightweight plastic accessory crab. This is ideal for attaching more or less anything to anything and is ideal for hikers, skiers and mountaineers. It makes a great part of a bodge-it kit for running repairs.
Available in two sizes and a variety of colours. Owing to it's plastic construction the Jivewire is somewhat less robust than a metal accessory crab and so is better suited to lighter loads.
Please note that this is an accessory crab and is NOT FOR CLIMBING or PPE use!
I have lots of little non-load bearing 'crabs around the place and these are the best I've found.
'Nuff said. Get a few.
I've tried several mini crabs in the past and the gates have always been too small and never lasted long, with the â€˜spring mechanism' failing after some use. These, however, are a different story. The gates are wider than conventional ones, allowing a wider range of use. They open and close perfectly time and time again, with no sign of losing strength. They weigh virtually nothing and are perfect for clipping my crampons to my backpack on a climb. I can think of a hundred other uses for them, and have invested in a handful more already. Buy 1, or 5, before someone else gets them all.
I really rate these carabiners because of the relatively wide gate that allows me to clip them over larger stuff than many small crabs to secure my backpacks and other items while travelling. They are obviously not for climbing but very strong nevertheless. Highly recommended.
I like having a couple of these handy and usually on or in my rucksack when out walking, mountain biking or climbing. Just handy generally for attaching things where a 'proper' carabiner just isn't necessary. They are more than strong enough for this and the gate has a strong spring so no worries about losing things. As they are plastic, they are nice and quiet, even attaching metal objects and jumping around.
Handy little things that save you having to buy full size crabs for menial jobs! Perfect for key chains or attaching a camera to your harness and the like!
The price is great as you'd expect, and they're fairly strong considering they're not rated. I've dropped a few heavy things attached to them and they've held up! Defiantly worth keeping a pack handy for odd jobs.
