          These are my goto 1st nuts out here in the NEast where cracks are non-parallel (not as good for parallel cracks) and with granite with pebbles/crystals as they notch right into the side indentations of the offset nuts.

              I used a friends HB offsets on a major multipitch climb in the Northwest and as soon as I could I bought a set for myself. They are great for placing in pounded out cracks that have seen a lot of traffic. They fit well and are easy to place!

                Probably the best nuts for hard rock. They work great in most placements, especially flared cracks. Lock in easily and clean like a charm. Scooped out volume helps around crystals and irregularities. The double tapper gives two distinctive placement sizes for every piece. They have the same geometry as the original HB nuts but are a bit lighter and colour coded. The only improvements possible may be to have the colour coding extend to where they swage the wire and countersink the wire a bit more at the nut end.

                    We found a #11 offset on climbs. Why someone would leave this beauty behind is beyond me, My partner started using it quiet a bit. I was impressed with how easily it placed and the indentation really let's the nut lock in and stay in place. I was so impressed that I bought the whole set. Well worth spending the money and adding to your rack.

                      These are a great complement to standard wedge-style nuts for filling out your rack. They fit pin scars, flares and grooves beautifully. I have these as well as the smaller brass models - Love them!

                        I added these to my rack and since have had to pick up doubles because they work so nicely! I climb alot at Red Rock and these seem to slot great between plates. Placement feels BOMBER!!

                          I've used many different brands and designs over the last 30 years, and these are the best all-around nuts I've used. The offset design takes advantage of the fact that cracks are almost never parallel-sided. More often than not, if it doesn't fit perfectly the first time, I just flip it over and it settles in as though it had been made for that particular placement. Out of the box, the nuts do slide on the cable. A dab of epoxy cures that problem for good. The overall design is so good I can't give it anything but a 5-star rating, despite the need for a quick after-market mod.

                          Comments about DMM Alloy Offsets:

                          These are great replacements/continuations of the HB offsets, with one minor problem. The chock/nut does not stay put at the end of the wire loop, but instead slides down to the middle of the loop when one lifts it up to place it. This means you have to put it between your teeth, pull it to the end, and try again. This is probably easily fixed with glue or tape. Other than that, they are great, and fit better than any other nuts I've used, inc. BD stoppers. For me, they are not a last resort to be used "when nothing else fits" -- they are always my first choice and work great in the Gunks, not just in Yosemite pin scars.
