The longer stiffie is made from two 15" flexible metal rulers facing each other and wrapped lengthwise with 1" tubular webbing.  The webbing tightly captures a Stubai Genius auto-clipping carabiner (that's about 25 years old)  and a short loop of Spectra cord that can hold a carabiner for a low clip. Duct tape holds it all together.<br>
<br>
The shorter stiffie is a ~6" wooden ruler enclosed with a mountain-bike handlebar grip and wrapped with electrical tape. I found its Genius in a consignment shop. Edit: I forgot to mention the 6" X 3/4" sewn sling that wraps the ruler lengthwise. The rope-bearing biner is held in position by a Petzl wide rubber "String."<br>

The Genius is cocked open and will snap shut when pulled down gently inside a bolt hanger. Because finding a Genius may be difficult, a good alternative may be a biner that has an easy gate and less of a hook shape. A pronounced hook shape to a biner makes you have to reach higher to make the clip. And you have to hold the stiffie at more of an angle in order to tease the biner into the hanger.
