I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned yet, but when buying racking carabiners for your wires, get solid-gate, key-gate style. It makes getting the wires off sooooo much easier.

Like this one:

You also risk spilling all of those nuts accidentally. Not worth it to me. That hook has saved my bacon more than a few times.

Pros and cons to each I suppose. I prefer to use it "keychain" style, grabbing the whole lot, selecting my nut from the group allowing the others to fall to the bottom, setting it in the crack, and THEN unclipping doing so all the other nuts are grouped away from the gate and typically gripped in my hand.

To each his own.


I do basically the same. I take the set (or half-set, really) racked together on the racking biner. Select the nut I want, and place it. Once it's in, I just unclip the racking biner from the placed piece and put it back on my harness.

Edit for clicky.
