There was a thread a while back about those of us that like to stay rigged up and ready to go. We all have experienced that sinker floppin around and bangin into things. Not only while runnin in the boat but when ya have your rods stowed where ever ya may keep them. I keep mine hangin up in my truck rigged and ready to rock. The thread told of a hair clip found in any dime store that will solve the problem. I went out and got some a few weeks back and wanted to give em a good test before postin any comments on them. Well, They work like a champ and I would like to give a "BIG THANX" to the individual that set me off on this mission. LOL! Pictures are pretty much self explanatory.
