Here's what other sites are saying:
Black Diamond Micro Stoppers are ultra-thin protection for aid climbing and thin trad lines. Copper-infiltrated steel heads fight shearing better than solid copper but are soft enough to prevent breaking the rock. The heads are swaged onto the cables, providing a more durable attachment than soldering. With Micro Stoppers you'll be able to sew up the thinnest cracks, even if you can't get your fingers in them. *Sizes 1 and 2 are meant for aid climbing only.

To ascend today's ultrathin gear-protected crack and face lines, micronuts are an essential tool. A full set of Black Diamond Micro Stoppers weigh less than a single quickdraw and opens up all sorts of protection possibilities. Micro Stoppers are made by shooting powdered iron into a die, and then melting copper into the iron. The copper fills into the iron's grain structure, making the nuts stronger. The copper, being softer than the iron, adds ductability to the finished product. Utilizes Black Diamond's patent-pending transverse taper shaping process.
Micro Stoppers are available in a convenient set that includes the full size run of #1 to #6, neatly attached to an OvalWire biner. Return Policy: Climbing equipment sales are final.
