The Hobie Gear Keeper helps you find your equipment where you left it; safe and on-board. This low force retractor tool is ideal for small gear such as pliers, lipper tools, etc and is rated up to 60 lbs. The Gear Keeper has a 36 in. nylon coated stainless steel cable and corrosion-resistant stainless steel springs and hardware. It comes with a split ring to allow for easy tool connection or disconnection and the snap-clip easily attaches to belt loops, PFDs, coolers, dry bags, etc.
I use them for my hook remover, pliers, line snippers, etc. I have one on each side of my seat, and will get two more for the front seat passenger on my Hobie Oasis Tandem. EXTREMELY handy.
Another must have item- great for attaching those small tools that easily get misplaced.
