    After a while the cable lanyards on my Greentouch racks fray and break due to twisting. I added a snap swivel in the center and haven't had any break in 2 years.

    Is that swivel from your tackle box? Great idea for almost any lanyard.

    Bob,

    Not to rub salt in the wound, but if you had a Trimmer Trap, there's NO pins to put a lanyard on! :D So therefore, no lanyard problems!!! Plus, its TONS faster with no clips, pins and lanyards to mess with.

    I still shake my head when I see guys that seem to need 3 hands to unlatch their trimmers.

    Looks like a good mod though! Kinda like the telephone cord "detanglers"!!!
