The HB stands for Hugh Banner - the climbing gear maestro who founded HB Climbing Equipment. Hugh was a real character and an extremely talented climber. He made numerous impressive first ascents during his lifetime, including the UK classic test pieces such as The Mangler (E3 6a) on Helsby way back in the 1960s! Hugh realized that conventional nuts don’t seat well in flared cracks, so he made one that did, and this is it. Well, almost.

DMM updated the design by dropping the wire into a recess with a full radius to keep it protected and give extra strength. They also reduced the weight with lightening holes on the two larger sizes. On slightly flared placements nothing fits like an Offset. Get a set as a back up for your Wallnuts and prepare to be converted.

This set of DMM Offsets gives you the versatility to protect flaring crack pitches that would otherwise warrant a serious runout. Ideal for both trad and aid climbing, DMM Offsets seat securely in places where regular nuts and cams just won't work. With these anodized aluminum nuts on your rack, previously un-protected stretches of rock become a cakewalk.
