You might be thinking that a nut key is just a nut key, plain and simple - it's just a piece of metal that dislodges jammed nuts? What else could anybody do to improve that? Quite a lot it seems. The more we got into the design process, the more we realised how much we could improve upon the standard designs. First off we gave it a wide rubber handle to make it easy to hold, so no more skinned knuckles when your hand slips off and rags against the rock. The rubber handle stops the metal digging into your hand when you hit a stuck nut. The rubber handle can also be taken off to use the 17mm wrench, useful for tightening loose bolts. It's made from the finest Sheffield stainless steel, laser cut to a precise shape which tapers down so that you can reach into narrow placements.
Don't get hung up on unclipping again. The HoodWire's design makes snagging the nose of your carabiner a thing of the past. This lightweight draw is designed to keep you moving so you don't waist time fumbling with hardwear in the middle of your climb.
