for that use (pull outs) your going to be pulling pretty much strait out most of the time any way. but occasionally i'll use a branch that's off set in an odd direction, just because it's convenient & it serves the purpose.
those clips are a much better design for this than the old style griff clips i that have. i probably bought them over 15 years ago & the line attaches to one side only.
i'll take a picture later just for reference.
but i believe i'll have to get some of the newer griff clips.
