Here's what other sites are saying:

You'll find the DMM Torque Nut Package surprisingly versatile regardless of the trad route you're climbing. These large camming units feature a unique shape that allows you place it in a camming position as well as a passive placement. Unlike any stopper, you can place the Torque in splitters with a simple twist, and they still make bomber stoppers in pinches and horizontals. DMM added an extendable Dyneema sling to each piece, so you can leave the alpine draws at home.


Big nuts have come a long way since the days of the Hexcentric; gone are the clunky, heavy beasts of old. Nowadays we have a much lighter and more sophisticated answer to big crack protection. The Torque Nut shape fits well in normal crack placements, but they have the extra advantage of working extremely well when placed in a camming position. Experiment with this at the bottom of the crag and you'll see what we mean. We've also given them a double sling. Clip them to your harness, doubled up and neat and they won't be clanking down by your knees. You've then got the choice of a quick extension once the nut is placed. If you are close to the ground keep it short to reduce fall potential. Further up the pitch pull it into the extended position to reduce drag.


When you need large passive protection, the DMM Torque Nuts step up to the situation to provide bomber protection for standard placements and camming needs. Cleverly sized and shaped, they cover a huge size range, and the double Dyneema sling racks easily and helps to focus force with precision.
