No, its a very tight fit. Soooo, just partially unscrew it, to get the position/angle you desire.
Thanks for that. How tight is it? If using only one clip with a t-handled half paddle, would there be enough leverage from the paddle that it would end up turning the clip when grabbing the paddle?
I have a 17T which means I have the added consideration of where to put things for my two seating positions (the solo middle position or all the way back when tandem). I need ready access to the paddle for beaching after pulling the mirage drive up. So far, the best place has been sliding the paddle halves into the rear horizontal rod storage. I can still reach the paddle easily when in the solo position. The only real drawback to this is I can't leave the T-handle on, so I end up never using it. It also chews up the rod holder space. ("chews up" both in the sense of "uses up" and potentially "is abusive to")
If the taco clip were all the way back by the rear trolling rod holder I wouldn't be able to reach the securing cord from the solo position, and so would have to leave it unsecured. Do you think it would be secure enough that way as a single clip? Or do you think I would need something like an H-Rail G-Hold to secure the T-handle end where I can reach it?
