Description

Time-tested passive pro, Stoppers are a direct link to the original chocks that started the clean climbing revolution. Black Diamond Stoppers are an essential for every trad rack, designed with a transverse taper that permits sideways placements in flares and shallow seams. Anodized by size, they're quickly identifiable and rounded edges make for easy removal. Each Stopper is equipped with a durable, galvanized steel cable.

  • Durable aluminum heads and steel cables
  • Transverse taper is versatile in flares, constrictions and parallel cracks
  • Rounded edges for easy cleaning (smaller sizes are straight for better surface contact)
  • *Sizes 1 and 2 are for direct aid only

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best nuts around I've been using BD nuts all my life and love them to bits. They are simple, reliable and affordable and they work in every sized crack you can imagine. January 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best stoppers out there These stoppers are easy to place and easy to clean. Love the shape and they seem to take abuse better than other brands. A absolute essential for every rack. November 20, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by A must for any rack These stoppers (nuts) are a staple for any climber's rack. The shape gives you several different orientations for placement so it covers a wider range of widths. The transverse taper makes them easy to place and really secure. I have yet to have one pop on me in a fall. They can be a bugger to remove so bring a nut tool. I've never used sizes 1 & 2 since I don't do any direct aid climbing, but I'm sure they work just as well as the rest. November 19, 2013
