Allows placing of non-typical TIPs

This is one of those pieces of equipment that I never thought I'd buy. It seemed too complicated to use when compared to a simple sleeve. I'm glad I got it though. This device allows TIP to be placed in tighter crotches and other less-than-optimal places than standard sleeves.

Sure it takes a bit of practice to get it right without reading the directions, but isn't that what recreational climbing is all about, Learning new things that make your climb easier and more enjoyable?

This isn't the friction saver I grab first, when climbing, but I do use it quite often. It makes a good addition to my gear cache.
