Ball Nut

CAMP USA Ball Nuts are the only choice for hammerless aid-climbing protection in thin, parallel-sided cracks. When the going gets thin, pull the trigger and place a Ball Nut in a crack as narrow as 3mm. Release the trigger, and opposing forces of the brass ball and aluminum nut holds these tiny pieces of protection in place. Much faster and easier on the rock than banging in a knife blade, CAMP Ball Nuts are the last word in protecting thin free climbs and saving time on aid-climbing lines.


  • The Ball Nuts' 8kN strength (1798lb force) is ready to save your hide if you log some air time
  • These allow for fast placements in knife-blade-sized cracks
  • Bigger sizes suitable for cutting-edge hard trad climbs
  • Works in parallel cracks where stoppers will not

Solid piece of gear

I've used it several times
Size Bought:
Full rack

CAMP ball nuts look a bit funky but boy do they feel solid when placed. Great for uneven or jagged rocks where cam lobes just won?t set right, and where the flare just won?t take a regular or off set nut. Surprisingly each piece accommodates more of a range than expected allowing for some good variation options. Most importantly, once set they feel super solid. If you climb thin, uneven cracks or pin scarred areas regularly, these are a versatile and essential piece of gear for your rack.
