Metolius Offset TCU’s are designed specifically for hard to protect flared micro-fissures & pin scars. They use two smaller cam lobes and one larger lobe to accomplish this. The narrow head width fits nearly anywhere and the U-shaped body absolutely doesn’t hinder placement. In fact it gives a very stable framework in which to hold the cam lobes. Unlike other brands, the Metolius TCU’s can withstand multiple walls worth of abuse.
Offset Cams are specialized pieces designed to fit in flaring pin scars, primarily for aid climbing. Cams placed in flaring cracks are far more susceptible to pulling out than placements in parallel-sided cracks. Climbers using Offset Cams should be very experienced in the art of cam placement and thoroughly understand the limitations of cams placed in flaring cracks
