Was surfing for various reasons and came across this..
Apparently RPs and HB brass nuts are no longer available over in Europe as they are not certified PPE equipment. Anyone who wants me to dispose of any of these dangerous little beast can simply send them to me ...

Yesterday or a half hour ago?
Heh, heh, heh.

Guess what?

(*... and still does; .. especially relative to what didn't exist before it! ☺)

Re KB's link...
Smallest IMP is rated at 4 kn.
Hmm. Way more than enough for thin aid(!), however I did note that they recommended nesting (doubling up etc), such gear for normal trad climbing pro; ... which is possibly the first time I have seen a manufacturer state that.
