Bass Pro Shops® Treble Guards
The innovative Treble Guard from Bass Pro Shops makes your favorite crankbait or spoon weedless. Simply push the treble eye into the hole in the center of the Treble Guard, and then embed each point into the end of a Treble Guard arm. If necessary, trim the length of the arms to fit your treble hooks.

Rated 1 out of 5 by bigfishken1 Sorry! This is a pipe dream...melts on lures and causes missed fish, not to mention getting stuck while trying to keep them in place. Best thing about them is i tried one bought by a friend! November 28, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by KingDinger Great Idea It’s a great idea and the reason I ordered some in the first place... but while they are great to have on your trebles on the boat... fishing with them on is another matter... the crankbaits don’t run as well with them on. As I say a brilliant idea but won’t be using them in the future. April 1, 2008
Rated 3 out of 5 by Ghost Set The Hook HARD For Best Results The BPS Treble Guards will keep you hooks weedless, but you will also miss fish. Great idea, but sometimes some of the hooks get exposed on a hookset, sometimes not. To be effective, you have to do a real hard hookset when using the Treble Guards. Make sure you keep your lures separate from the Treble Guards, the soft plastic will melt in w/ your plastic lures...not good. March 18, 2008

Details:does it make you not be able to strike hard enough?
A:To use this guard on a lure like a spoon or crankbait as the add suggests, you would have to remove the treble to slip the guard over the eye and then reinstall the treble on ths split ring. That is more work than the add implies.
As for hooking, problems are similar to Texas rigged worms. It depends on how you cover the hook point-burrying it deep or leaving it near the surface.
Is it worth the trouble? Yes, if that is the only way to achieve your presentation in weeds.

A:I think that the "Treble Guards" intended purpose is to be used on plain treble hooks that are not installed onto lures. The treble guard would of course be for storage of hooks and would be removed to fish with.
Hooks mounted or installed onto lures would use either a rubberized hook cover or a hook bonnet. They would also be removed from the hooks for fishing.
