DMM Torque Nut 1-4 Set

6   |  

Torque nuts are Dmm's solution to large passive protection. As the name suggests, these cunningly sized and shaped climbing nuts work well in standard placements but also have an efficient camming system.

Although Torque Nuts can be used as a wide wedge, their biggest advantage is based on the camming principle of the original hexes. Keeping the all important pivot points but with a modern redesign, we've developed a piece of passive protection kit that is immensely strong yet very light. Rated at 14kN this equates to holding approx a 1.4 tonne static load. Just four sizes cover a very large range and they are all anodised for recognition and corrosion protection.

Those of a certain age may recall the early hexes, a.k.a. seagull bashers, heralding your arrival at the crag as they swung around your legs like cow bells. But they worked and in the days before spring loaded cams they offered the only means of protecting certain cracks.

Skillful placement of Torque Nuts will still work in some places where cams simply aren't as effective. An important consideration is that cams point load the rock while Torque Nuts spread the load - the greater the area of the nut in contact with the rock the wider this load is spread. Bear this in mind if climbing on soft rock for example and to maximise the nut's holding power. Torque Nuts will also be the choice of protection for iced-up cracks over a spring loaded cam.

The Torque Nuts have a double Dyneema sling arrangement (patent pending) that allows you to easily minimise rope drag but without them bashing you in the knees when they are racked. A groove on the top of the nut protects the sling

The best hexes on the market

Having only 2 cams on my rack, I often find my set of Torque Nuts are invaluable. There is no better feeling than placing a bomber hex, and given the choice I'd place a good Torque Nut over a good cam every time - there's less to go wrong! The extendable


Really Great Set Of Hexes!

First of all I haven't tried any other hexes apart from the DMM Torque Nuts but I have to say that they are the best addition to my rack. They provide a variety of placements which I have found to be ideal on short Grit routes, to longer limestone routes,

Light and flexible...

I was looking for some hexes to replace my older kit and after much deliberation, chose these and I am very pleased I did. I needed light gear for the Alps as well as trad routes in the UK. The shape of these nuts makes them suitable for a bigger range of


Extendable sling is a good feature, a bit poor in design

Sling extension is trickey, firstly the sling does not glide through the hex, the hole feels too small for the sling. Secondly if you try to pull the wrong end of the sling the taping gets stuck, but you get used to them and the extension is a really good
