Torque Nuts

Torque Nuts can be used to protect parallel sided cracks. Their shape means they can be used in multiple orientations, giving you a wide range of placement options with every piece. Lightweight aluminium alloy construction means that despite their low weight, each Torque Nut has a 14kN strength rating.

An extendable sling lets you reduce rope drag without extra quickdraws, and can be replaced with DMM's in-house re-slinging service. Torque Nuts work in all conditions. They are especially useful in winter, when icy cracks cannot be protected with cams. However, Wired Torque Nuts are more resistant to accidental axe strikes and easier to control placing above your head.

The DMM protection range is colour coded for quick and easy size selection. Colours are co-ordinated across passive and active protection, for quick selection of alternatives if your first choice doesn't fit.

Torque Nuts product features

An overview of the features and benefits of the Torque Nuts.

Placing the Torques in vertical cracks, both in bottleneck and more parallel placements, is straightforward. They are a pleasure to use and on my first trip out with them I managed to place all four of them in a new route that I climbed that day – a route that is now named Welsh Wizards as a result. UKC
