How the FlipClip™ Works


Fish Friendly. Angler Approved.

After years of development, the FlipClip™ is the only non-invasive method to keep deep-caught fish stabilized in your live-well while their air bladder regulates.



Just How Does it Work?

When a bass is pulled from deep water, their air bladder is likely to swell, causing the fish to "belly up" in your live-well.


By attaching the FlipClip™ to your fish's anal fin, the weight will cause your fish to be stabilized. This forces your fish's gills to remain submerged in the water.


By having the FlipClip™ applied to your fish, it reduces their stress from limiting the amount of energy that would otherwise be spent to upright itself in your live-well.


Research has shown that the FlipClip™ is an effective tool that greatly increases a fish's chances of survival.




Simply Attach 1-2 FlipClips™ to the anal fin of your deep-caught bass to stabilize them in your life-well, reducing their stress and enhancing their chances of survival




About the Clip of the FlipClip™

The clip of the FlipClip™ is a very important element of the product. The nickel-plated clip provides the perfect amount of tension to firmly grasp the fin of your fish. The nickel-plating also prevents the clip from rusting.

The 'teeth' of the clip are textured to create enough friction to not slide off the fin, while simultaneously preventing trauma.



Live-Well Friendly

The weighted portion of each FlipClip™ is rubber coated. This coating prevents scratching to the bottom of your live-well.



Colors for Culling

FlipClip™ 3-packs include three different colors. These colors allow FlipClips™ to also be used as a marker to identify the smallest fish within your live-well so you can quickly locate which fish should be thrown back, a process called culling.

    What Other Anglers are Saying

    "The FlipClip™ saved a fish for me! A fish swallowed the hook, and when we got the hook out, the fish was bleeding. I checked on it and it was floating upside down so I put a clip on him and he was good-to-go at weigh-in. Thank you."

    I would just like to give thanks where it is due. While fishing during the dog days of summer I was fishing a unofficial tournament for an up coming championship... About 10:30 in the morning I put the first fish in the boat. Immediately the fish tried to go belly-up. I remembered I just received a set of FlipClips™, so I added one onto the fish. It uprighted the fish, and I went to weigh-in at 3:00 p.m with the fish alive, and was able to release it alive.

    " I was fishing on Lake Erie with my father when he caught a very nice Smallmouth on a tube. The fish was caught in about 35 feet of water, and to make matters worse it was hooked deep and bleeding. Bad combination. The fish was laying on its side and not doing well and sure to die. After placing the FlipClip™ on the fish and putting some SureLife® chemicals in the live-well the bleeding stopped and the fish was up righted and no longer bloated. He was released very healthy to be caught another day. I thank you and SureLife® for these products that help keep our fisheries healthy for generations to come."

    "I was drop-shotting "cold" fish out of 30 feet water. I used the clip on a 5 pounder that saved our day and allowed us to finish in the top ten.

    With out the Flip Clip, the dead fish penalty would have cost us the top ten, and very valuable points. Thank You again..."

    "I used one of the clips in a tournament last week to upright a bass and keep him alive after deep hooking him. Great product!"

    "FlipClips™ are the best thing I have used for bleeding (air from) fish and you don't have to even stick them with a needle. The first time I used the FlipClips™ I fished a tournament at Falcon Lake. All my fish where caught out of 20+ feet of water. I did not lose one fish. All the fish I weighed in were in such good health I could hardly catch them and put them in a weigh in bag!"
