With threaded stud and mount and heavy duty snap-clip. Keeps the staff handle at your side - away from your fishing line, but easily accessible when you need it. Just grab your staff and use it. When you don't need it, just drop the handle and the staff is back at your waist again! Built to last. Designed to survive extended saltwater and chlorine exposure. Sand and debris are flushed from unit when operated in water. New Quick Connect-II System adds convenience and flexibility.
