The new “Auto-retract” cord holder eliminates the annoying tangles of cord on the deck of your boat when using lure retrievers. The auto retract cord holder stores your lure retriever cord neatly and safely and keeps your boat deck free of loose coils, thereby avoiding tangles or tripping over cord. To use the cord retriever, attach your lure recovery device to the end of the cord. To deploy the cord and recovery device to free the snagged lure, release the cord by pressing the large black button. When lure is captured, pull on the cord to release your lure, then wind your lure and retriever up with your reel; the auto retract holder will retrieve the cord leaving your deck free of obstacles. It features a stainless steel spring for long life and a handy clip to use retriever hands-free. With 7.5m of 40 kg cord, it can also be used as a cord system for light Kayak Anchors. Suitable for salt and freshwater use.
