Double ended trigger clip - what for?

(1/3) > >>

aricooperdavis:
Whilst exploring a mine today I found a double ended trigger clip lying in the mud (photo of what I'm talking about attached). Can anyone tell me why a mine explorer might be carrying one? The entrance is a shaft, if that helps, so SRT these days but probably laddered by explorers not so long ago.

Keris82:
Don't they use these for diving?

Yes, it's referred to by some divers as a "bolt snap".

aricooperdavis:
What do divers use them for? In this particular location there's no diving but it could always have come out of a divers pocket on a non-diving trip I suppose...

Pitlamp:
They use bolt snaps for the extra entertainment of struggling to operate them with cold, sausage fingered, neoprene clad hands.   ;)

My own preference is for proper krabs, which have far better feel. (At least in British sumps.)
