R2 Series Mini Gear Keeper Plier Retractor
The spring-loaded RT2 Series Mini Gear Keeper Pliers Retractor utilizes six ounces of tension to automatically retract pliers or other tools when you're done using them, prevents them from going overboard while unhooking fish, and otherwise keeps them handy at all times. The saltwater-proof, palm-sized canister attaches to the wearer with a belt clip that features a quick-release connection. A rugged nylon lanyard and 28-inch stainless steel cable connect pliers to the canister. Suggested retail $21.99.
