The DMM Torque Nuts shape fits well in normal crack placements, but they have the extra advantage of working extremely well when placed in a camming position. Experiment with this at the bottom of the crag and you’ll see what we mean. DMM has also given them a double sling. Clip them to your harness, doubled up and neat and they won’t be clanking down by your knees. You’ve then got the choice of a quick extension once the nut is placed. If you are close to the ground keep it short to reduce fall potential. Further up the pitch pull it into the extended position to reduce drag.
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.
