With these anodized aluminum nuts on your rack, previously un-protected stretches of rock become a cakewalk.
DMM is bringing an old favourite back to the market The high demand for these nuts is because their complex offset shape offers placement opportunities when nothing else will fitThese nuts are based on the famed HB Alloy Offsets and were produced using modified versions of the original HB dies In typical DMM fashion we have brought them into the 21st century with colour coded sizing recessed wires and lightening holes in the largest two sizesFeatures DMMs accurate heat treatment process optimises the physical property of the alloy to maximise bite Weve recessed the top of the nut and countersunk all other drilled radiuses in order to avoid stress points where the wire enters the nut This also totally protects the wire from abrasion damage The nuts are all rumbled well to remove sharp edges that can hinder placement The wire used on each nut is chosen so that the nut can be placed at full reach without them flopping around We use a full size crimp because this is critical to safety The label is upside down so you can check the size easily when they are on your harness The label is double sealed so that it does not tear with time and use Product Weight Strength Color Offset 7 31g 12kN Gold Offset 8 34g 12kN Blue Offset 9 38g 12kN Red Offset 10 43g 12kN Grey Offset 11 55g 12kN Light Blue Note that this item of climbing safety equipment is nonreturnable Please call us toll free at 8772368428 or email bentgatebentgatecom with any questions
When nothing else will fit, rely on the complex shape of DMM's set of five Alloy Offsets to get the job done. Based on the HB Alloy Offsets, these are the updated version, complete with color-coding, labeling, and recessed wire holes, but with the same all-important unique shape.

The Offsets were originally designed by Hugh Banner, the climbing gear maestro who foundd HB Climbing Equipment. Hugh realised that conventional nuts don t seat well in flared cracks, so he made one that did, and this is it. Well, almost. We updatedt the design by dropping the wire into a recess with a full radium to keep it protected and give extra strength. We also reduced the weight with lightening holes on the two larger sizes. On slightly flared placements nothing fits like an Offset.
