Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does the job, but other tools are nicer I love BD products, and usually super happy with them. However, I'm always lusting over friends nut tools. My biggest complaint is that many other tools come with a built-in way to connect this to a harness. One of my friends has a nut tool with an extendable leash (it is coiled like a telephone cord, which makes it easy to access the tool from the harness), and others have tools with a built-in clip or carabiner. As another user commented, the design also has sharper edges which are a little rough on the hands. The BD nut tool works, but its pretty bare bones and unexciting as far as gear goes.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Could have some improvements The nut tool is does the job well. However, The black finish does not match (nit picking) with the rest of the chrome finished gear black diamond offers. The bottle opener is a neat idea. The nut tool would be more beneficial if there was a way to connect the tool to a gear sling. I had to purchase a small piece of webbing and another biner in order to secrue it to my second. Other than the finish, the harsh edges, and the lack of a lanyard, it is a solid piece of gear.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A must have I'm not sure why some folks are bagging on the BD nut tool. Come on, it's a nut removal tool. How exciting is it supposed to be? It helps remove jammed nuts and cams like it's designed to. It even has a bottle opener for Christ's sake. If the edges are too sharp for your delicate hands wrap the end with some athletic tape. Tada! BD could have added more bells and whistles, but then it wouldn't be $9.95. It's always done what it was designed to do. No complaints here.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It does the job Well, BD's nut tool 'does the job', but not much else. Finish isn't exactly brilliant, and the clever ideas that all competitors have included in their versions of the nut tool are here absent. E.g. Hex to tighten the standard 17mm bolts, clip included, bigger overmoulded handle to grip better, etc. Overall, BD's nut tool does the job, but doesn't stand out above the rest

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mandatory, Minimalist and Effective As a wise old goat once said to me (in somewhat cruder terms), "Never mind the Second; Set the pro." A nut tool is a mandatory part of the trad rack, because you can't always count on your Second having one, but you can count on jamming a nut on any trad pitch. A nut tool would have to be perfectly magical to get an "Excellent" rating from me, and the only way to get to "magical" is for the nut tool to pull impossibly stuck gear without me actually having to do anything to make it so. At "Good," this is the best nut tool that i've ever owned. Yeah, it could have a groovy clippy thing to fasten it to my harness or rack, but then it wouldn't cost $9.95. At that price point, I can drop this thing off a high cliff, never to be found (by me), and i won't cry. And the bottle opener feature ... that's a key feature for this climber, because it means that the designers are thinking holistically, like the rest of us rogues.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Round the Edge This is the only piece of BD equipment I complain about. The sharp edges on the handle make it hard on the hands when prying, pounding, and cussing to remove stuck gear, especially when striking with the heal of the hand. Keep the bottle opener and price point :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from no frills, just function If you had to design the most basic nut tool and keep it functional and cheap, this would be it. Yes, others have candy apple red bells, but I actually prefer this one. Does its job and gives you options as to how you want to attach it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Classic Nut Tool This is a great nut tool. I've used one for years, and it's very durable, works well, and it opens bottles too. You should pick one of these up, you won't be disappointed!
