The most common removable bolt plate in Australia. Still required on many middle and easy grade routes (e.g. Blue Mountains). Made from 2mm high tensile austanetic-feritic stainless steel. Although you can put a magnet to these, they are a marine grade and are twice as strong as 316 grade stainless steel.
Best stored in a separate chalk bag or usual chalk bag for ease of access on route. It's important to clip only solid gate carabiners to bolt plates as wire gates can leave a gap for accidental detachment off the bolt head. The 45 degree version allows for threading over bigger bolt heads which is sometimes necessary.
