Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Sometimes placements are tricky. Different crags throw up shallow cracks, off-width cracks, old peg scars, all of which are hard to protect with conventional nuts. Peenuts offer an excellent alternative, they have a tapered profile allowing them to fit where a regular wire won't seat.
Perfect for small flared placements, the DMM Peenut Stopper Set includes 5 stoppers that are shaped to allow a bigger area of surface contact than the smaller brass micro nuts.
If you find yourself looking at tiny flared cracks, you are going to wish you had DMM's Peenuts on your rack. Being both offset and tapered, these nuts place easily, give maximum surface contact, and work extremely well on soft rock. By spreading out the fall impact across a larger area, they reduce the chance of breaking the rock and losing your placement.

Small flared placements can be dealt with very effectively; providing of course you've got some Peenuts on your rack. These offset and tapered nuts are worth their weight in gold on granite and slate. They allow a bigger area of surface contact than the smaller brass micro nuts. This means that the energy generated in a fall is spread out and the rock is less likely to break. If you climb on quarried rock a lot this type of nut really comes into its own. Nothing fits those flared peg scars like a set of Peenuts.
