The Squid Stick Clip by Trango does an elegant job of clipping out-of-reach bolts and allows you to UN-CLIP carabiners from those same bolts. The Squid can pay for itself in recovered draws in just a few days and you can load up your karma bank by retrieving draws from others. "Fingers" at the end of the pivot-arm grab the gate and open it with a pull, letting you take the carabiner out of the bolt. If the draw is hanging, a clever set of arms will place your rope into the draw.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done The only stick-clip I've found that can also take the draws down. That's a big deal for me since sometimes me or my buddies want to try extra hard routes. We've dealt with doing some sketchy things trying to get the bolts down and down climbing and it's not worth it. The downfalls I can find of the device is that the rotating arm could break off potentially and also the silicon used to grip the carabiner sometimes isn't too good at gripping. But a little fiddling is better than a nasty fall any day!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The squid is an awesome item to have in your bag We bought this because we were looking to step up our climbing game but wanted to do so in a safe manner. It's been great for that and has given us the opportunity to climb a grade above our current level. It's also great on climbs that are run out with the first bolt having the possibility to fall unprotected. The Squid is also super easy to use and to get the hang of (Pun intended). I watched a video on youtube before buying it and only had to watch it the one time to get the basics of how to use it. We have already recommended it to our friends and am now recommended it to you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Official-Looking Previous to purchasing the Squid I would just find a long branch and tape my quickdraw to the end. That was usually okay for clipping, but retrieval options are limited. Now I can get my draws off the wall if I was feeling too big for my britches and couldn't finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Most necessary purchase for new climbers If you're transitioning from top rope to to lead climbing, this is a useful tool. If you want to send a route that has a crux early on, this is a useful tool. If you decide you can't finish said route and need to retrieve a quick draw out of reach, this is a useful tool. Simply attach it to any extension rod and suddenly you have a go go gadget arm. Takes some technique, but you got this!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have! I used this for clipping my first and sometimes second bolt when they in sketchy positions. It makes the start of sports climbs exponentially safer. A single trip to the hospital will ruin your day, ruin your trip, and may ruin your season. I would have spent double or even triple the price for the added safety.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Plastic breaks easily It might be that my husband is the Hulk and doesn't know his own strength, but he broke this thing trying to clip the first bolt on a route in the Red last year. It was completely worthless. We ended up buying a metal stick clip (haven't seen it anywhere online yet) from a local gear shop that we saw every other climber using; it's also much easier to use than this Trango one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Wanted to like this... We bought this specifically to clip the 18-22+ foot high first bolts on a couple of routes in Wood's Quarry in Boulder. These routes are up a 75 degree smooth slab and falling would mean a long slide down and landing on broken rock. Hence, the stick clip. ,,Clipping the 1st bolt with the Squid was pretty easy but when we tried to attach the rope, it easily slid through the Squids rope arms & made looping the carabiner impossible. To be fair, this was complicated by the fact that the quickdraw was lying against the face of the cliff (being a slab). We then attempted to unclip the quickdraw from the bolt using the Squid and were able to open the gate but couldn't get the carabiner in the right position to get it off the bolt. . At any rate, we finally just climbed up & unclipped, pretty much defeating the whole purpose of using the Squid in the first place.,,Probably works better on vertical/overhanging terrain & if you practice using it first, which I foolishly did not do...,,

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I really like this product. The design allows for easy clipping of the first bolt, unclipping of the first bolt, and works like a charm. Although I do not think that it is worth the price, if you're afraid of a too-high-to-be-safe first bolt, it's something that could potentially save your life. There are indeed other alternatives for stick clips, but should you desire, this guy is reliable and resilient. A suggestion would be to purchase a lightbulb changers pole in place of one of the Trango poles offered. These are great and you can just tape the Squid to the pole. Wah Lah!
