The HB Brass Offsets from DMM have a pretty fanatical following and for good reason: their unique shape allows climbers to protect pitches that were otherwise not viable. The units are manufactured from very specific quality brass that is silver soldered onto stainless steel wire. The wires benefit from a color coded alloy swage that is only dinked on one side i.e. one wire runs free so that the head is always loaded optimally. The color coded swage helps with selecting the right size first time.
Secure safe placement in cracks with the durable silicon bronze and silver casted HB Brass Offset Nuts from DMM. Choose from among the 7 sizes and know you're grabbing the appropriate one each time - identify each by the color-coded swage treatment on the stainless wires.

I once was full of woe for HB stopped making brass offsets. I am now full of joy that DMM picked up the torch and has again brought us into the light. These are the go to piece for thin pin scars and funky placements on dicey clean aid. These were MAGIC on Desert Shield in Zion a few weeks ago. Simply stated the route does not go easily without them.
If you find yourself climbing in the land of flared or pin scarred cracks, there is no other option for bomber pro! A set of these on your rack will protect you where nothing else will, so if its Zion, yosemite, or wherever...add these to your nuts!
Best nuts out there!!! I bought with the intention of using only in tricky aid placements, however, these guys have become a standard staple on my every day rack. Buy a set and go climb the Green A with just these guys!!
