Instruction for use, storage, maintenance and inspection.
The Wedgemount nuts are made of 6061-T6 aluminum alloy for maximum light weight and strength and they have a galvanized steel cable for resistance to corrosion. They feature colour-coded anodization and numbering for easy visual identification.
The Wedgemount nuts have a transverse tapered shape that allows for multiple placement options. With their classic concave and convex shape they will cam securely into placements when loaded.

The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
