Product Details

Keep valuable tools close at hand with the Gerber Fishing Tethers, carabiners designed to fit on-finger for intuitive control and tension relief. The Defenders deliver the perfect combination of power and retractability.
  • Constructed with corrosion-resistant covered anodized aluminum for long-lasting on-the-water durability.
  • Belt clip lets you easily attach the Defender to your body, pack, or waders.
  • An integrated eyelet on the belt clip also allows anglers to string a lanyard, carabiner or split ring (included) through as an alternative attachment.
  • The Tip Control Carabiner releases tension and maximizes utility by allowing the user to take the load of the tether off of the tool and onto their finger.
  • Available in two sizes: large and compact.
  • The large Defender is capable of holding heavier tools and features a 48" Dyneema cable with a patented side-release lock to secure the tether in place when engaged.
  • To protect the tool, the large Defender's line lock features an override system, which automatically unlocks the tether under pressure in the case of a snag.
  • The compact Defender has a 36" Dyneema cable, integrated slip lock and a third attachment option with a threaded shirt pin stud.
