What is the Stonfo Safety Cord?

The Stonfo Safety Cord is a coiled retractor that lets you attach your forceps to your jacket, vest, pack or lanyard to prevent them from getting lost when in use. If you've ever put your forceps down while unhooking a fish and then lost them in the bankside debris, this is just the gadget for you.

The coiled retractor can be attached to your jacket, vest, pack or lanyard to prevent you losing your forceps.

How do you use the Safety Cord?

On one end of the Safety Cord there's a connector with two metal clips encased in a sliding mechanism. You simply position the clips where you need them and slide the connector up to close off the connection. It grips very tightly and won't slip down, so your forceps and the Safety Cord stay attached. It's versatile and can be clips to vests, jackets, packs or lanyards.

Position the grips, slide up the mechanism and the Safety Cord is locked in place.

What's it like to use?

We've been using the Stonfo Safety Cord both attached to the clips on our Stonfo Fishing Lanyard and attached directly to the special tool tab attachment on my Loop wading jacket. They work really well. The coiled plastic retracts tightly so it doesn't take up much room, but expands greatly giving you plenty of reach when unhooking fish.

The Stonfo Safety Cord is great to use.

How much does it cost?

The Stonfo Safety Cord costs £7.50 and are versatile enough to be used in almost any application. That's pretty decent value, given the cost of a decent pair of forceps.
