Every once in a while you stumble on a gear gem. Even though at first glance I didn’t see it, the Qliplet is such a gem. This is a carabiner on steroids with a rotating, folding hook that hangs just about anywhere. It becomes a hook to hang things like bags, jackets, and gear off of just about anything. So not only is it a carabiner used to attach things, it is a hook to hold things.
On our recent trip out west we used the Qliplet as both a carabiner and as a hook. On a nightly basis, we extended the carabiner’s hook, slipped the hook onto a loop inside the tent to hold a small lantern. Prior to heading to sleep, we used the Qliplet to hang the light over the picnic table, illuminating our late night meals.
