Instead of taping biners to flimsy sticks and working up a pump trying to lasso the first draw, simply attach the Trango Squid to a standard paint pole before heading to the crag. The patented Squid has the ability to hang draws, clip the rope, and even unclip the draws at the end of the day—now let's see if your tree branch and tape can handle that.

  • Easily attaches to any standard paint pole
  • Patented design allows you to hang draws, unclip draws, and clip the rope
  • Although any standard paint pole will do, Trango recommends the Mr LongArm ProPole

Yelling and cursing in nature

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got into sport climbing for sport, not risk and adrenaline so I have no shame in stick clipping anything and everything. This thing is pretty awesome and allows you to work projects with anchors inaccessible from other easier routes. You can aid up a wall or back track (depending on your high point), never losing gear again.

I am giving it 3 stars just because it seems there is not enough space between the rubber pad and the pivoting arm that holds the gate open. With my BD Positrons (pretty standard draw) it takes a lot of force to get the spine of the biner to wedge in. While this isn't a big deal when clipping (since you do it with your hands), it becomes a hassle to unclip because you cannot apply the same force.

Feeding rope through hanging draw: A+
Hanging draw: B+
Removing draw: C

Best stick clipping tool

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Trust me, there is a learning curve on this thing, but once you get good at it, you'll never want to use a clamp or those coat hanger contraptions ever again!

If you're not man enough to rodeo clip

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This tool is perfect for those times when you are just to sketched out to climb up and clip that first bolt. With a little practice you will have no problem placing or receiving draws, or placing ropes in draws already at that first bolt. Any painter pole or most broom sticks will work with this.

Nice Tool

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I used this stick clip on a recent trip to Penitente Colorado. No problems clipping quickdraws and ropes. While there are homemade versions of stick clips, this device is quick and efficient. If you don't mind "highballing", you probably don't need this, but I found this to be helpful.
