Sometimes it's the SMALL THINGS that make a BIG DIFFERENCE....

Deluxe hook keepers from American Tackle look great, are super durable and add that little "pop" to a mostly overlooked component.

From the pics it looks as if the S2 splits the difference between the large and small of the previous style. Correct assumption? I have been using the folding fuji keepers small size. Mainly because I like the size. They seems to fall in between the small and large size of other keepers. However the folding feature does not last very long. Would prefer a simple two foot keeper. These look like a great option. Do you have aprox dimensions?

Hey Michael,

These are some pretty cool hk's. Total length is 1"/25.43mm, foot length(each foot) .276"/7.02mm, height .184"/4.69mm. Hope that helps.
