    Bigger than nuts, lighter than cams.

    DMM Torque Nuts provide the utility of large nuts, the range of hexes, and a unique sling design that makes racking much easier. The doubled Dyneema sling lets you shorten your gear’s length for unencumbered racking, and all you have to do is grab one side and pull for full length after you place a piece. DMM’s geometry lets these nuts cover a wide range of cracks with only four sizes.

    BOMBER!!!!!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love them! I trust these bad buys more than a cam, and they are super light. The sling is genius thanks DMM .I have taken lead falls on these and still been able to retrieve. bottom line you should own a set

    Awesome design!!

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

    Each nut offers a few different sizes to place it. Place it correctly and you can get the added benefit of a camming like action to further secure the placement. What sold me on these versus others was the extendable sling. The rounded edges also make it easier to remove

    Pretty Good!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I'm stepping into the realm of Hexes, trying to reduce my dependency on cams (and weight). So far it's been pretty good, I can still place a cam much faster than these things but there's a learning curve to everything. I do feel more positive about these with the webbing vs cables (I used to own the BD version). They work very well in horizontal placements! Pulling the sling through can be a bit of a pain, even if your pulling on the joint end, but I think this is still superior to cables.



    Overall I'm happy with them and I'll keep using them, when I do find a place for these on the wall, they feel absolutely bomber!!



    So far I only use numbers 1&2, they do take up a bit of space on the rack, I can only imagine the larger sizes are even more bulky.

    Pretty Good!

    What you expect from DMM

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I picked up all but the largest Torque Nuts from various sales and got to try them out recently with the warmer weather and I was not disappointed. I placed at least one on ever climb and I always felt great running it out above one. They bite the rock really well and having three placement options (plus rotating 180 degrees) makes them feel really secure and easy to place. I often found places where cams didn't feel secure but these were right at home.

    They work great in horizontal placements and behind ledges. Doesn't really replace a cam, but is a nice complement to them. These do seem to work better than old wired hexes and other hexes I've used, they have a slightly different profile the extendable sling is a nice feature. If you have only used normal hexes in the past, it's worth giving these a ride, you'll notice a difference.

    What you expect from DMM

    Get a set.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have a full set of cams and will still bring these with me. They are very light, have their own extendable sling, and bite into the rock very well (actually, they might be the only hex your partner ever has trouble removing!). I'm always happy to place a torque nut, and as others have said, carrying each hex on it's own nut just makes sense. The material used to construct each hex head can be a little loud when they clang together, but I think it's worth the weight savings.

    Almost perfect

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought these (full set) for a trip to Joshua Tree because I couldn't afford cams but my partner and I needed some more largish pieces. I was very happy with them. I always took at least 1 on a climb, usually 2. I found a placement on most climbs. They are very solid when placed well and I found that some constrictions just SCREAM torque nut. I would never consider wired hexes. Slings are the way to go. I never took a fall on one but I definitely would feel confident going for a big move if I had one of these below me.



    They are great but the overlap is still not perfect, I think they are the best hexes ive seen, but they do not deserve to be put in a different category from hexes altogether.

    Really Impressed

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

    I've been critical of hexes before I actually encountered them and saw how secure they are. My buddy countered a lot of my cam placements with his set of DMM hexes. They're not hard to place and cover a good range for the weight. I'll be picking up a set as soon as possible.

    I like!!

      I like these a lot better than the typical wired hexes. They are easier to place and you need fewer of them because one torque nut covers a bigger size range. The extendable sling is pretty awesome as well!!

      Extendable slings is a win-win for me.

        I love the extendable slings on these! At first I didn't think they were that great, because I racked all the hexes on one biner. Then I climbed Baboquivari Peak with them (several pitches of 5.6). I took only passive gear on the climb, and so I re-racked these to be each on their own biner, using BD neutrinos for color coding. Returning to my usual mix of cams and passive gear, I haven't "demoted" them back to a single biner yet. I use them way more when they're on their own, I can get right to the one I want, and usually I don't need to extend them beyond the sling. Fantastic.



        At first I also didn't like the lack of intermediate sizes, but I kind of like how they match BD cam colors now. Makes it real easy to see which one I want from looking at the rock.

        Better then BD or WC...

          Well, they're the best hexes on the market, but the camming range could be better, and there could be more sizes. DMM tries to compare these to regular cams, but their range doesn't overlap very well, so they aren't nearly as functional. I would also like a size smaller than the green. I dunno, hexes can be useful, and these are the best, so you don't really have any other options, but I think DMM can do better.

          Needs *less* cowbell

            I bought these hexes because I loved the idea of DMM's webbing system. But unlike other hexes, these don't seem to want to stay put when you slide them up the sling so each hex hangs at a different height and they don't clank together like cowbells. It's probably because these slings are spectra and it's not a huge deal, but you definitely don't want to get these if you're into stealth climbing.

            Light, solid, loud

              I've mostly placed these in basalt and find them to have a very positive camming action. They set solidly with a tug (not worried about the rope knocking them loose at all) and are definitely confidence inspiring. I haven't found any placements yet that have seemed a little too big for one, but a little too small for the next size up, so it looks like they nailed the overlap. They're totally loud, but hey, they're big hexes, whaddaya expect? The sling extends pretty easily and saves on draws (it can take a little longer for seconds to rerack them with the sling extended, but if that's a deal breaker for you just leave the sling doubled and use a draw). Another really cool feature: the sizes line up really closely with the equivalently colored Camalot C4's (.75-3). Gotta love standardized colors.

              Not enough overlap

                I've used the torque nuts several times. They work great in the horizontal, but vertical cam placements are more harder to find because the change in sizes don't overlap well. Don't expect to be able to cam these in every vertical crack, even when they are uniform. The sales pitch is that there are only four sizes that cover the same ranges of other curved hexes with fewer pieces. That's bs. They need to add some sizes in between. Oh wait... you just want to hear about how great they are and why you should buy them. Sorry. They are fun to place and look cool though. I count on my tricams ten times more.

                Best Hexes

                  These cover a great size range, and cam like you wouldn't believe. I have used the #4 on every climb since I got them. The double length sling really does the trick when you need to prevent rope drag, there are just so many options. They cover the same spectrum as the #5-9 Rockcentrics with one less piece - a real weight savings!
