Even though the Superclip has been on the market for a couple of years, this nifty, simple and unbreakable all-metal device has ducked beneath the sport climbing radar. In fact, at one American sport-climbing mecca, not a single person had ever seen the device, but all were duly impressed.
The Superclip does everything—it can put draws up, take them down and clip ropes through already hanging biners better than more complicated devices. To remove a draw, simply hold a rope that’s clipped into the bottom biner taught, and push the Superclip’s two prongs through the upper biner.
My only complaint with the Superclip is that if the draw webbing is thick, then it can be difficult, if impossible, for the Superclip to remove the quickdraw. The only other stick-clip device that can remove draws from bolts is the Trango Squid ($29.95). The Squid certainly performs this task better, but its moving, plastic parts have proven breakable and a brain-tease to figure out.
