    Default Heroclip: Right Outta Seattle

    Interesting bit of kit. Spendy, but looks useful for camping, and for working on other folks boats --

    I'm a little bit surprised no one here has one already...

    I like a quick lash-up but to go all line means you have to get around the belay point. This gizmo enables hanging from a shelf or cleft. And the surface hooked need not be perfectly horizontal or very large. I like the way the clip folds into the gate to lock it shut and not in use as a hook.

    I’m with Bruce. Solution in search of a problem.

    I suspect, for me, it will fall into the category of 'didn't realize how useful it'd be until I owned one'. That happens with tools sometimes. For me examples are: oscillating multitool, magnetic digital angle gauge, 12v tire inflator, and others. YMMV, of course.

    I use carabiners a lot like in the corners of my truck bed or hanging from points in my shop. Not sure why I need to spend $20 to add a hook to a ‘biner. But yea Seattle!

    Didn't know these things existed before this thread... Gotta admit that if I had a passel of them in my shop, I'd find uses for them. But when a bent length of old #12 electrical wire will suffice.... Why?

    And I'll add.. If I were to be given one of these things, I'd probably forget I had it when I needed it. Or, just as likely, I'd think, "That clip thing would work here!" but it'd be someplace else. So I'd use a spring clamp instead. Or maybe a bent coat hanger.

    I'm 74 years old and sometimes I look around my home and just marvel at how much "stuff" we own.

    ^ yup. I had several of Nite Ize S-biners that looked ingenious on the display board at REI. Never actually used them.

    I do have several of these and use them all the time. My wife “borrows” them a lot.
