Protect your pliers, scissors and more — and keep them at-the-ready with the all-new Gear Keeper Micro Retractor Super Zinger with Carabiner Clip (Model RT5-2106) by Hammerhead Industries. Anglers at this year's ICAST show in Orlando, FL were the first to see the new product, which packs a whole lot of bells and whistles into a tiny package, making it the toughest zinger on the market.
Hardcore anglers can tell you, whether you are standing in waders in waist-high water or balancing on a small boat, in those final moments before landing your fish, there's no time to wonder if you can get to your gear. You need security in knowing you can grab your tools and not worry about where they went after use. Trust the new Gear Keeper Micro Retractor Super Zinger with Carabiner Clip, a solid and reliable mounting system featuring a super strong Spectra line which has a hefty 50-pound break strength. The durable line extends 36 inches to allow full arm extension and retracts beautifully, employing the company's renowned saltwater-proof patented flushing system that works to clear sand and debris from the unit.
The RT5-2106 Micro Retractor Super Zinger locks onto your clothing or just about anything with a carabiner clip, and has a patented Q/C Connector System specifically designed to allow anglers to quickly and easily connect and disconnect their gear. Precision made and built to last, the durable retractor is constructed with stainless steel spring and hardware. As with all the company's products, the retractor is "Hammerhead Tough" and protected with a money-back guarantee. Three Mounting Options include Snap Clip (RT5-2101), Threaded Stud (RT5-2102) and Spring Clip (RT5-2103).
The original Gear Keeper system was engineered specifically for SCUBA diving literally born out of a need to secure items in situations when hands are otherwise occupied. Gear Keeper systems are now available in more than 3,000 configuration options and used in applications from hiking, fishing and hunting to law enforcement, military and trucking.$12.99www.gearkeeper.com
