Carolina Keeper 4.7 5 31 31
Light line dreams I use these on light line 4-8lb and they haven't failed me yet. Light tackle surf fishing, light line spinning for bass,trout and panfish. June 27, 2012
huge timesaver Love these things, saves a couple of knots skipping the barrel swivel. Just don't use on 2 lb test as knots appear a little stronger on the light stuff. (4 lb seems ok) Saving the time on the knots of course allows you to to take another cast while the school of trout are still in the area. May 26, 2012
Keepers These worked good for me with less than 1/2Oz. wt, but they do start to build up a line twist after a few casts, needing to re-tie the hook on a piece of new line passed through. Good at what they are supposed to do I guess, would have given more stars but the line twist has become a noticeable problem for me while using these. May 25, 2012
Love 'em These work great unless you are using 2-4lb test. I always have a few on me August 18, 2011

I know know what exactly these are or what they do. I think I have an idea though. Like, I think they basically lock onto the line. So would I need a swivel if I use these? Please answer quick! BPS opens in 40 minutes and I only have 2 hours to shop!!!

A: 
No, do not use these as a terminal knot. It is used to hold a weight or a bead or slip bobber in place.

A: 
No they do not require a swivel. First place on a 3/8 oz sinker, then a glass bead, then another 3/8 oz sinker, then a glas bead. The use a set of pliers to pinch the KEEPER open. Insert your line into the KEEPER, Slide the keeper(OPEN) up to about 24" on the line. (Its a good idea to add a second KEEPER to keep the sinkers and beads from sliding down during casting) Then after you hhave the second keeper on, Tie on a 4/0 or 5/0 wide gap hook (Palomar Knot) with an 8" Zoom Magnum Lizard. Use 17 lb Flourocarbon line. Throw this rig around points and flats. Sit back and enjoy catching!!! PS-use a slow retrieval!!!!

A: 
Your correct about locking onto the line. Think of them as a sort of crimp, but having the ability to easily remove it. I use them to hold weights at a certain place on my leader or to hold beads where I need them. You can also use them as bobber stops. Swivels will still be needed...these do not stop line twist.

A: 
I don't use a swivel and they do fine. There may be a certain type of bait that would cause more line twist than others but I haven't had any problems.
