DMM Brass Offsets have long been recognized as the go-to choice for thin, hard-to-protect trad routes and clean aid lines. The tapered design increases security in flaring placements, and DMM uses soft brass to reduce the chance of fracturing rock sending you on a big ride.
Secure safe placement in cracks with the durable silicon bronze and silver casted HB Brass Offset Nuts from DMM. Choose from among the 7 sizes and know you're grabbing the appropriate one each time - identify each by the color-coded swage treatment on the stainless wires.

The HB Brass Offsets from DMM have a pretty fanatical following and for good reason: their unique shape allows climbers to protect pitches that were otherwise not viable. The units are manufactured from very specific quality brass that is silver soldered onto stainless steel wire. The wires benefit from a color coded alloy swage that is only dinked on one side i.e. one wire runs free so that the head is always loaded optimally. The color coded swage helps with selecting the right size first time.
