The Caranut is Discontinued as of 2015Omega was the first company to introduce a nut tool with a built-in carabiner, thus saving you the weight of an additional carabiner to clip the tool to your harness. The Caranut is one of the lighter packages on the market. The shape put it slightly below average for hooking cam triggers to help with freeing cams. It cleaned nuts quite well though. Its built-in carabiner is very user-friendly and went on and off our harness better than any we tested.
The Omega Pacific Caranut is for climbers looking for a good price but still wanting to lighten their overall package by having an integrated carabiner. It is as comfortable as the DMM Nutter and slightly better than Black Diamond nut tool, both at $9.95. We thought The Caranut cleaned nuts as well or nearly as well as either of these similarly-priced nut tools and again you get the best clipping built-in carabineer we tested. We also found that the built-in carabiner was one of the easiest to use for getting on and off your harness. The Caranut isn't very comfortable but it is less money than other nut tools with a specific medal pommel to pound on.
