Quick release leashes
« on: December 03, 2002, 10:04:14 AM »

For those of you who use clippers/androids...what is the best way to clip the leash back onto the tool?  I just started using Moser clippers, and while they unclip fine, I find it a bit difficult to get the clip back into my hand so that I can reclip them...any suggestions?

I am sorry to say, but nothing can be done with this type of release leashes...  So many poeple I know have droped a tool because of their bad design.  The locking system unclips without even asking the most concerned person first...  Sell them and get a pair of BD release leaches, they are unbeatable, they do the job flawlessly, as far as I am concerned  ;D  That is the set-up I use on my Quarks.

Charlet is about to come out with a new generation of leashes, maybe then, they'll have something good to offer.

To anwser your question, to clipping the leach back on the tool can be greatly facilitated by setting the system so that the clipper is right at the tip of your finger.  This is certainly not possible with the Charlet release leaches, but the BD system allows you to set the clippers at your desired position on the shaft of your tool   ;)

I have an andriod on one of my Cobras and like it. if I could afford it I would get another. it works really well for everything except alpine. for that I still like my twist leashes. the only negative thing is when I am belaying & am unclipped sometimes the clip flails around & gets in the way.

So, after you unclip, what's the best way to get the qr back in your hand so that you can clip back into the tool?

A little wrist swing and that's it... the "thing" is in your fingers, ready go be clipped back.  Another way is simply to put your hand down and the "thing" can be grabed with ease by the fingers...  good luck !
