Auto Fish Grabber
A flick of the wrist is all it takes. Then a simple squeeze grabs the fish and won't let go. The strong, corrosion-resistant jaws will not bend or twist, ensuring a solid grab of most game fish. This lightweight fish grabber is made of shiny aircraft aluminum with a stainless steel spring that lasts. Open to 4-1/2'' wide.

Rated 5 out of 5 by graber Auto Fish Grabber Great buy! Works well and keeps the hands clean. Not good for large fish over four pounds. December 21, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by aParrothead Quality Tool This Auto Fish Grabber works great. It's kind of neat to hold the end and flick your wrist and it springs open like you're Wolverine. Seriously, it is built well and does what it is supposed to. It doesn't work well on bluegill and crappie. They're too skinny and tall. Then again, bluegill are easy to grab. It works great on bullheads and bass. July 13, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by CfishNow Purchased as a Replacement. I purchased this product to replace one that was lost on my husband's last fishing trip with a friend. The auto grabbers were for his friend. His friend loves this product. When my husband lost it, the friend was ready to toss him overboard to retrieve them. The medal grabbers work better than the plastic. July 27, 2011

Details:The thing is, I was born with only one hand... my left arm ends in the lower forearm area almost the wrist. I just started fishing again but much more than i was a kid, at least 3-4 times a week now, but I ALWAYS worry a lot when ever I land fish because it takes me a long time to unhook the fish with out causing it major harm, which happens about half the time almost.
I bought 2 different plastic cheap dehookers but, my big problem is that no matter what I try I can't get a solid opposite force going when i try to unhook with pliers or the dehookers...
The most comfortable way for me was handling the fish under my left arm against my chest kinda, but I've killed fish by squeezing too hard on accident so I just don't even do it that way anymore. But that's how i hold most things, up against my body.
I think this type of fish grip lock is perfect for my situation because I could lock up the fish with it in my right hand, then would be able to quickly switch it over to my left to tuck it under my arm & against my chest or just put it through my left arm like a purse kinda and finally be able to take the hook out properly! I rarely take my catch from the waters i fish.
I need something light, easy to hold & release, and most importantly for me that it will lock in place gripped position.
Thank you so much for any answers, help,and advice, I really do appreciate it!
A:I do not think it is designed to lock in place. My just sticks. The gripping teeth are also sharpe and would need to be rubber dipped to prevent damage to the fish.
