Don't have the reach of an NBA all-star? Squid Clip can assist you when your reach falls short.
Trango Squid Rock Climbing Clip Stick - The Squid Clip Stick by Trango is a revolutionary stick clip that allows you to clip rope and hang draws, as well as UnClip. The Squid does a great job of clipping out-of-reach bolts and allows you to UN-clip biners from those same bolts. When combined with a stiff pole, its unique fingers at the end of the pivot-arm grab the gate and open it with a pull, letting you take the biner out of the bolt. If you are looking for equiptment that will pay for itself in recovered draws in just a few days, you have found it with the Squid Clip Stick by Trango.
"Trango Climb Squid 12VCB7100183. Fingers at the end of the pivot-arm grab the gate and open it with a pull letting you take the carabiner out of the bolt. If the draw is already hanging a clever set of arms will hold your rope so you can clip it into the draw. The Squid will work with any standard paint pole. We recommend the 8' 2-piece Mr. LongArm ProPole. The pole needs to be stiff; the Squid will not work with a tent pole."
Instead of taping biners to flimsy sticks and working up a pump trying to lasso the first draw, simply attach the Trango Squid to a standard paint pole before heading to the crag. The patented Squid has the ability to hang draws, clip the rope, and even unclip the draws at the end of the day--now let's see if your tree branch and tape can handle that.
