Not to be a jerk, but do you think the speaker in the film meant 'piton', and either pronounced it funny or you mis-heard?
Nah, Tetons are oldskool gearz. Forest made them, I think. Or was that titons? Meh.

Yes, they are spelled "Titons" and were made by Forrest Mountaineering. I still own a full set. Haven't used any of them since 1979, however.

They are the "T" shaped thingies mixed in with the hexes and SMC Camlock.
