When it comes to kayak fishing, a way to tether your gear is a must. Enter Gear Keeper, a company developing tethering options for the kayak angler.
Retractor Products Allow you to Paddle into Some Serious Fishing Action Equipped with Everything you Need
Kayak fishing means being able to access some of the most under-fished and remote waters out there. When you rig up your kayak this season make sure you can access everything you need with Gear Keeper® retractable tether products. Perhaps even more important when balancing in a less stable kayak, Gear Keeper retractors allow you to grab what you need, use it and release without having to worry about where those tools go. Use retractors to keep everything – from your net to your fish gripper – safely stowed in the kayak and ready for use.
Whether you’re just getting started or you’re a seasoned pro, you’ll need the basics including your net. Keep it close at hand with the Gear Keeper Landing Net Retractor ideal for landing nets and fish grippers. If you need to re-situate the kayak or if the fish runs when you’re about to land him, know you can release the net, and focus on the task at hand. The retractor allows you full-arm extension meaning you can scoop up anything you can reach, and also works hanging on your back. Built to last, the retractor is made to survive extended salt water and chlorine exposure and its ingenious design works to flush sand and debris out of the unit.
When it comes to keeping your fish gripper safe, a wrist strap is not enough. Constructed of stainless steel components, and proven to work use after use, the Gear Keeper is exactly what you’ll need. Fitted with a Nylon/Kevlar retractable line that boasts an 80-pound break strength, and 32-inch extension, the retractor has a locking snap clip/mount, which allows the unit to be extended and locked when in use. The fish gripper application can be attached with a standard D-ring snap clip, or mounted with two different kinds of bracket mounts.
Gear Keeper devices utilize the company’s renown Quick Connect-II System. The connecting mechanism adds convenience and flexibility and works with a snap clip, Velcro® strap or high force snap clip mount and allows the angler to quickly and easily disconnect the net or fish gripper from the Gear Keeper. A high-impact casing means Gear Keeper Retractors can take repeated bumps and knocks.
The original Geer Keeper system was engineered specifically for SCUBA diving literally born out of a need to secure items in situations when hands are otherwise occupied. Gear Keeper systems are now available in more than 3,000 configuration options and used in applications from hunting, fishing and hiking to law enforcement, military and trucking.
