The Rod-On was created as a safety feature for the fishermen, not just the rod! How many times have you tripped over a safety line while fighting a big fish even after you have cleared the cockpit of the other rods! The Rod-On! will hide up underneath the gunwale and then stretch out to hook up to your rod when needed. It will stretch from 5 inches to 5 feet and has been tested to over 450lbs.
