    I was wondering why McGizmo's pico clip wasn't more popular. Doesn't a smaller clip make everything more compact? 15 mm doesn't seem that small...

    Yes it is. It's barely wider than my MiniChamp!

    I agree the pico is small and compact but my experience with that clip is it isn't robust and has let go on occasion. The wire gate is just too flimsy. Consequently, it only gets duty in captive situations, for example like in a bag etc. The slightly larger McGizmo SS Nano Clip ~ 20 mm has proven to be a much better option for valued gear. In fact, no more buying of pico clips for me.

    We set up sport routes and possible trad lines =) rock rescue requires a different set of biners and a much bigger pack. They should incorporate more PALS into them climbing packs.

    I got this cheapo clip from eBay. Next to the MCA:

    The words say stainless steel so I'm hoping it's not plated.

    Very simple design. A bit difficult to remove things. I threaded my belt through it so it holds the end of my belt up. It looks like it could clip onto a waistband/pocket too.

    One of 7 made, spring tempered brass. It's still got a gap, though.

    We have to go smaller! Got 100 of these for $2:
    [​IMG]
    They're supposed to be 12 mm long.

    I think the choices for clips to clip on a keyring are, from cheapest to most expensive:
    Cable ties
    Lanyard clips above (about 10c each)

    "SF" clips

    McGizmo (that clip on the finger) and TEC Python clips

    What is the purpose of that copper-like wire? It is to keep the dangler at a certain length?

    It is copper. It's for grip when pulling the clip out, like GambleMade's tiny paracord tags. Because previously I would grip the P-7 under the tip to pull it out, and I was worried it was deforming the P-7.

    My clips are here! Family pic:
    [​IMG]
    Their quality seems ok but they're very weak. You can force them open by pulling in any direction. I wonder if the pico clip's gate is stronger.
