When roaming fishing it is handy to always have a pair of pliers ready. You often see that they are then pushed into a pocket that is actually too shallow. If you want to unhook a fish and grab your tongs, it turns out to be gone! Fallen out of your pocket and you are tangless. With the Quick Connect Lanyard you no longer run this risk. Attach the clip to your pants or bag and the split ring to your tongs. Due to the elastic cord you always have enough length to use the tongs when the fish unhooks.
