Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Product Carolina Keepers are perfect for throwing the Carolina rig. You can switch from a 6 FT. leader to a 3 in. leader in seconds. Works Amazing!!!! April 7, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Carolina keepers This was not what I expected. You still have to thread line thru a tiny tiny hole as you pinch the keeper. I thought maybe it was able to pinch the keeper and slid it on an already hooked up line. To easily switch from Texas to Carolina style.... Not the case! But my thoughts are an excellent idea for a new product to be created. March 25, 2014

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!!!

Put a swivel on about 6-7 feet above the hook just to reduce any twisting.

A: 
NO swivel needed unless your using heavy lead 1 oz+ or a lot of current which may twist the leader. They allow you to adjust your leader depth without retieing a different leader. SO QUICK AND EASY.buy both colors.

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.
