Topic - DMM Revolvers seized. Anybody successfuly repaired them?

daualset - on 29 Oct 2012
DMM revolvers must be some of the best gear I have ever owned...

I use them to reduce drag on trad routes but above all on the cruxes of sport routes. Falls are just that much smoother and the rope hardly gets any wear.

The thing is my Revolvers rarely last more than a year.

The rope rubs against the side of the carabiner next to the pulley (opposite the wirelock)and only comes into contact with half the pulley. After being used numerous times the pulley starts wearing down along itīs axis and develops play. Once this happens it normally seizes up and can no longer be used. This isnīt just because it no longer turns but often because the side of the pulley is exposed and is sharp enough to make one hesitant about using them.

I sent an email to dmm and they replied saying they sold no replacement parts and also asked what use they had seen during there lifetime. They were also kind enough to send me a user guide... Iīm still waiting for a reply to my second email.

I was wondering if anybody on this forum has had any luck repairing them and if that is not the case maybe enough people would like to share their experiences with Revolvers and in this way we might be able to encourage them to sell a repair kit.

Here are some photos of my revolvers:
