I have used these Carolina Keepers for the past 7 years . They are a great addition to any tackle box to alter the original type of carolina rig. The keepers allow only one tied knot at the hook for much better line strenght to the hook. I have made my own style Carolina Rig with these keepers and it is part of my secret arsenal! I hope they comtinue making these items!

I use them two ways. As a weight stop for 1/4 oz egg sinkers when fishing bait for cats, and as a "quick" carolina rig using 5/16 tungsten worm weights for bass. Both are rigged using 15lb Stren super braid. They will slip a little, but I dont mind as I just readjust the leader length.
Great Product. I just ordered more.

great item weight is easy to adjust only thing is dont squeeze them too much when loading on line or they will not remain in place

The Carolina keeper is great. I just started using them this year, and don't know how I lived without them. I generally use 3/8 oz, and occasionally 1/2 oz with 12 -14 pound flourocarbon and they work very well. Using above 1/2 oz I have had the regular slippage like everyone else, and they do lose grip after a while of use, but I have a rod rigged just for carolina rigging and am only on my second keeper for this year. Saves a ton of time especially if you loose the hook or "leader" on a rock or something just slide it up, tie on and go. Super time saver. Used with the Lindy No-snag these keepers are great. Highly recommend them.
