    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Black Diamond Magnetron RockLock Locking Carabiner is rated 4.75 out of 5 by 12.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick One Hand Release Mechanism The coolness: It can be unlocked in a sigle motion if your hand is large enough. (I have medium sized hands, and I can open it without a problem.) It makes rappelling on a multipich a breeze. And switching belayers has nevere been faster. The greatest concern I think someone would have, is that the carabiner locks in place through the use of magnets. I can assure you that as soon as you use it, you feel how strong and secure the magnets are. The carabiner needs three different actions in a single motion to fully unlock, so the chances of it unlocking on it's own are slim to none. The Cons: Price is definitely a factor. It is $15 more than a regular screwgate, and $7 more than a twistlock of the same model. I wouldn't buy this if it weren't for the fact that we do climbs where we rappel 10-15 pitches, and those precious minutes screwing and unscrewing add up. Second, it is a bit more difficult for someone with a small hand to unlock it in a single motion. (It was proven to me by my friend who has smaller hands. She still loves having one, nonetheless.) Overall, only buy this if you need to get off/on belay/rappell in a hurry. Or if you just want to have the coolest magnetic carabiner around.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid performance I've been using the Magnetron for a few weeks and have been very pleased. With any new type of technology I'm always a little skeptical of how it will perform in the long-run, and thus far have had no signs that would indicate the locking mechanism could fail. The only thing that makes me weary is that you can't tell just by taking a quick look at the carabiner if it is locked. You can only make that assumption without physically testing it, though, it has never failed to lock. In contrast, other auto-lockers and twist locks show a red band around the device when unlocked. Because of this, I am hesitate to give this carabiner to a beginner...then again it is pretty fool proof.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Very Cool Carabiner It's functional, it might be a little bit less of a pain than a screwgate or an autolocker, but really it's just a cool toy.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun Biner I initially bought one of these as a gag for a fellow climber (one that has climbed for 9+ years). At first glance it is a pricey piece of gear that doesn't really improve upon the original screwgate. However, we had a lot of fun using it (we sound like children). But, just pinch and go. Simple, clever and easy to use. So, while I say this is a completely unnecessary purchase, I also say that it is a unique piece of equipment and if you have the extra few dollars to spare, I definitely recommend it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, easy to use carabiner After purchasing multiple screw lock and twist lock carabiners i decided to give this one a try. I was not disappointed, its incredibly easy to open, has held up just fine on any climbs, and has yet to show signs of damage. The only possible downside to this is that since it is easy to open, there is a risk of opening it accidentally, but it has yet to happen. All in all I would definitely purchase another one

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Improved, but not ultimate yet. This product is a great step forward in climbing technology it is dependable and easy to use, unless you are wearing gloves, so it's not so great in cold weather. I would like to see it with a wide mouth, and a gate rotated at a 15 degree angle to allow it to open farther.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great one handed locker I like to use it in the gym for my belay biner & for setting rappell or top rope anchors.
