I didn't know MSR made nuts but they are pretty simple and anybody can. SMC made some I think.

I was hoping Stéphane might have a thought.

I am very sorry Banquo, but these nuts do not say anything to me. This time, I am sure that Maestro Grossman will be the man for a genuine expertise. They are not made by SMC.

Steve, I am not sure that the Grivel stacking nut was ever marketed, one more reason to make it so hard to find. The same week I received it from Denis Pivot, there was one sample on eBay.com. It was just incredible, as I had never seen such a nut on eBay before.
I too saw the Laprade Coinceurs Gigogne on eBay recently.

Bunch of Hype. nuts are easier to place and offer way more protection possibilitys than pins. gaurenteed if nuts did not work so well we would still be pounding iron.....

After Roland Paulick designed RPs the next big splash in nut design IMO came from the folks at Hugh Banner with HBs.

I had some of those bunk SMC nuts, they were gud 'leavers'.
Fear not, I didn't pay for 'em.
