In an ideal world the leader places protection with some thought to how easy it will be to retrieve for their second. In reality this rarely happens, and nut keys are invaluable for retrieving jammed gear.
The Nutbuster takes this simple concept and refines it. A rubber handle gives a firm grip, and lets you bash the Nutbuster to remove stuck protection. It can be removed to reveal a 17mm spanner that lets you tighten loose bolts. The Nutbuster is laser cut from stainless steel for strength and corrosion resistance, with holes cut into it to minimise weight.
A versatile and functional tool that every trad climber should carry.
Rubber Handle makes retrieving stuck protection easier.
The Nutbuster's rubber handle protects your hands if you need to hit the end to retrieve stuck gear.
Laser cut from stainless steel for low weight and corrosion resistance.
Stainless steel construction increases the Nutbusters longevity by protecting it against corrosion. It also reduces weight, so carrying a Nutbuster won't slow you down.
Narrow profile aids access to deep or awkward placements
The Nutbuster is thin and has a relatively small head, allowing it to reach placements that would otherwise be very difficult to clean.
17mm spanner lets you tighten loose bolts
Underneath the rubber handle is a 17mm spanner that will fit most bolts, allowing you to tighten loose bolts on sport routes.
