Alloy Offsets


Irregular is better.

Alloy Offsets protect irregular and flared cracks that regular nuts cannot. Every size of Alloy Offset has a robust 12kN strength rating. The wires they are mounted on are set into a recess to reduce wear, while larger sizes have holes that reduce weight. Use in conjunction with Wallnuts for comprehensive all season crack protection.


Asymmetrical taper gives stable placements in offset cracks

Nuts with an offset taper protect cracks where normal nuts would not sit properly, such as flared cracks and peg scars. Use in combination with normal nuts to find security in almost any crack.

Allows placement in two orientations for increased versatility

Passive protection can be placed either side or face on, doubling the number of cracks any single piece can protect.

Grooved faces improve security in irregular rock

Wallnuts and Offsets have a groove machined into their faces, allowing them to sit better in irregular placements and on highly featured rock. This makes them more versatile across different rock types.

Colour coded for easy size identification

The DMM protection range is colour coded on the anodised nut and shrink wrap for quick and easy size selection.

Passive protection works in wet and icy conditions

Passive protection works by jamming in constrictions to prevent falls. It is suitable for use in all conditions. Unlike active protection such as cams, passive protection can be used in wet or icy cracks, where friction is reduced.

You'll always find somewhere to place an offset

Those who boast they have never climbed with offset nuts are really missing the point. Not essential but certainly make life easier and I'd take a nicely seated offset over a questionable regular one anyday.

Favourite Passive pro

These are the nuts of choice in most instances. Go in with confidence and have caught many falls. Absolute weapons


Great bits of kit, take plenty of hammering as a staple of my winter rack.

Fits in the awkward crack!

These are great. they fit in those awkward cracks where normal nuts just don't sit right.
