What happens when you over torque a climbing bolt?

We didn’t tighten and then over tightened our ⅜” 5 piece power bolt with a basic hanger on it then pulled straight up to see how important recommended torque was. We will test this again in harder rock but we didn’t notice any huge differences from the torquing itself. Lots of stuff in the Bolting Bible and these break tests on the BoltBuster data sheet… all on our website.

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
