Handie Hold-It Supply Caddy
Needs some help
The theory behind this unit is excellent but the material used in it's manufacture is
severly lacking in quality. I have gone through half a dozen of these in the past five years and most of my fishing buddies have done likewise. If you are unfortunate enough to bump the unit with your foot or a tackle box the unit just breaks off of the mounting, especially if the temperature is low. Also the plier holders only last a few weeks and they fall off. There is absolutely no strength to the material and I can't understand why that can't be improved.The idea and design is fine but it gets kind of pricy to replace these things a couple of times per season. I would like to see BPS contact the manufacturer and see if they can't up grade the cheap plastic to some other, possibly carbon fiber type, material. Thanks

Hold it Caddy
The Hold it Caddy is perfect for my kind of bass fishing!
It is out of the way on the seat post and holds pliers hooks, lures, and sent attractants, as well as a cold drink. It does all this and is out of the way as well, so no more kicking stuff around on the front deck of my boat. This allows me more time to concentrate on finding and hooking Mr. Bass.
This is a great product and I would recommend it to any fishermen with boats that have pedistal mounted seats.

I have used this product for several years now and it serves a great purpose. Keeps my clippers, sunscreen, and plastic dye close at hand.
I agree with some of the other reviews which state that quality needs to be improved. It helps keep several things close during your trip, until the pliers attachement breaks off after a few trips across the lake. I ended up strapping a plier sheath on the opposite side of my seat pedestal, which only cost a fraction of what another Caddy costs.

Great product. Not perfect
My old one lasted 5yrs and came apart while driving home from the lake in the rain -I keep a towel clipped to this product, and the extra weight was evidently more than it could hold. I lasted a month without replacing it, and was miserable. I count on having my soft drink/coffee, scent spray, and plyers where I want them, when I want them.
I love this product.
I fish in west Texas in high winds, -so my boat gets pounded. I hardly ever have tools bounce out of this unit.
