Description

Save your arse from the big ride.

This set of DMM Offsets gives you the versatility to protect flaring crack pitches that would otherwise warrant a serious runout. Ideal for both trad and aid climbing, DMM Offsets seat securely in places where regular nuts and cams just won't work. With these anodized aluminum nuts on your rack, previously un-protected stretches of rock become a cakewalk.

Taken more falls than anything on rack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Its amazes me that these are not as common as the typical BD nuts everyone seems to have. I RARELY find a situation where they don't fit as well as the basic wallnuts. Also great because the 5 in this set fit such a large size range. I supplement these with a few smaller or larger square nuts, rather than the other way around.

First Passive Pro I Reach For

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Hands down these are my favorite pieces of passive pro that I own. Any time I opt against placing a cam, the first thing I reach for is my DMM offsets over a set of regular stoppers. I still bring both with me on certain climbs but The ease of placing and cleaning the Offsets are far better than other stoppers I have.

Flaring Cracks:
On flaring cracks I can place these and know that I won't have to fight to get them out. Just a nice little poke with the good ole nut tool and they'll effortlessly come out.

Anchors:
I love these for anchors on multipitch. The only thing that makes me hesitant about using them as my anchors is that I don't get them back for the next pitch.

Sizing:
These come in the bigger sizes from a #7-11 My #9 and #10 are probably my favorite two sizes. I like the bigger sizing as I'm a big more comfortable taking a fall on these versus some of the smaller stoppers I have.

Red Rocks:
I was stoked when I say a few climbers down in Red Rocks that were in their mid-70's and have had their DMM Offsets for years and were well used and still going strong.

Overall:
Add these to your rack or if you're just building a trad rack, make these your first purchase for passive pro.

Confidence inspiring

These things are perfect. More sizes would be awesome, because I seem to reach for these 3/4 of the passive placements I make. Ideal for flaring cracks or those weird spots other nuts just aren't bomber. I'm going to end up doubling up on these one day. A perfect addition to any rack!

How Do They Hold So Well?

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The DMM Offsets seriously do fit where nothing else will, and they stick like glue.

I placed the #11 in a very shallow, flaring constriction with only about half of the nut actually contacting the rock, and while I probably wouldn't want to take a big whipper on it, it was more than solid enough for aiding up to a more solid placement.

It took me a little while to figure out exactly where the offsets would fit best, but now that I have an eye for them, they are my go-to nuts.

must have on rack

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These fit everywhere! I've climbed in the Canadian rockies, J-tree, Gunks, NRG and I always pull these out. I'd consider them necessary gear for anyone's rack

Responded on

I agree 100%, I reached for my DMM offsets before I reach for a regular set of stoppers.

Bomber Nuts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have used these on both the East and West coast, and these things have saved me numerous times. You place them, they stick. Taking them out has been easy as well, with the wires standing up well to twisting and abrasion. Best complement I can give them? I trust them with my life.

17 years later and no need 4 replacement

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been climbing on offsets since the HB days (the original patent that DMM now sells). I still have two original sets fo HB Brass and the original offset nuts that differ only in their lack of anodization. They place as well in normal constrictions as Wallnuts, Rocks or Stoppers, but in uneven or flaring (inwards or outwards) placements, there is simply nothing better. They also seem to be the Hardiest of my gear given that after almost two decades the original sets are still perfectly fine and trustworthy.

How do they work so well?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Like Ben R says - it's hard to explain how these chunks of metal are so much better than other chunks of metal, but they are! It took a couple outings before I started to really 'get' where these go, but now that I know, I end up using at least 2-3 on every pitch now.

Overall, they just make life easier (and more secure).

Deez Nuts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These are great nuts for pin scars and flared cracks. They will get you through pin scarred aid lines and flared free climbs. If you add these and some offset micro nuts you are sure to conquer places like Yosemite and Zion. Get some!

Sometimes I carry doubles

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I reach for this things first. I used to fiddle with BD stoppers or Wallnuts, but now I've learned to always reach for these babies first.

Parallel, flaring, irregular, regular(?), I mean jeez these things fit everywhere!

What's great about that is that because they are flat on all sides, they area generally super easy to clean.

Also, they have 3 different dimensional tapers, so there are like a bajillion different orientations you can try these in.

I know this may not have been the best review, but it's difficult to describe in words how "These hunks of metal on a wire fit into the rock better than those hunks of metal on a wire".

Just give them a try. Trust me.

Can't go wrong with these

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These nuts will fit in places other nuts won't.
The recessed wire at the top increases their durability and longevity when compared with other nuts.
The anodized aluminum allows for both increased durability and a soft metal that allows the rock to bite into it, thus increasing its secureness in a placement.

Don't hesitate to add these to your trad rack!

Best Stoppers Out There!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

When you get something, you tend to find out more people then you thought had it too. While climbing across the States this summer, I realized these DMM Offsets could just be the most owned but more importantly, LOVED stoppers on the market. I have never heard a single complaint about them, and I sure don't have any.
They work so incredibly well in flared cracks! Size 7-9 seem to fit in just about any any and all crack. I compliment my rack with the sizes 4-6 DMM Brass Offsets, and will soon get doubles and more smaller brass.
Features
-Aluminum alloy offset nuts on wire
-Wire recessed into top of nut and full wire radius for extra strength -Lightening holes
-Color coded for easy recognition
-All stoppers are rated 12kN

A bomber nut set that should be on everyone's gear loop!

The bomb

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

As good as it gets for the sizes they are available in. Unquestionably the first nuts I reach for in almost all cases...and often the only thing that fits for flaring pin scars or the like. Awesome for free and aid climbing. Buy them and love them!

Just the right size

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I have only used my offset nuts twice, but I already love them. They just fit perfectly. Very satisfied with my purchase.

Use these over bd stoppers

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

With each trad climb I do, I realize that I use every single dmm offset and zero of my bd nuts. The exact thing that makes the bd stoppers insecure is what makes these the best nuts ever, like when the crack flares in the back. Definitely get two sets of these. If anything getting only the largest of the bd stoppers is a good idea. I wish the dmm had a few larger sizes.

Beautiful placement

The most bomber nuts you will ever find. Combine with the DMM Walnuts for a great rack.

Beautiful placement

Do the Black Diamond micro offset sizes...

Do the Black Diamond micro offset sizes #1-6 match up with these? As I am not interested in the DMM brass if I don't have to be. I asked this on the BD micro offset page but figured I'd get a better answer here.

Best Answer Responded on

Dan,
Yes, the DMM Offset Set #7-11 will pair up nicely with the Black Diamond micro offset sizes #1-6 for a full set.

Best large stopper out there.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

After climbing on the DMM Offsets for two seasons, I don't even bother bringing up my BD Stoppers up with me any more. I still carry a few large wallnuts, but almost all of my passive protection these days is offset nuts. The offset gives these things crazy versatility, and if I'm ever looking for a straight-sided piece, I just turn them 90 degrees to minimize the offset. These guys are great--a must have for any climber, but especially one who frequents areas with irregular cracks.
