    Hello,

    If you purchase the part on its own our base shipping charge is $7.95. If you buy a hat, hoodie, or decoys the collar keepers will ride for free. The $2.00 per 24 is our cost. The option that won't work for you but would be cheaper is warehouse pick-up @ $2, no shipping.

    I have 20 dozen whiterocks in my arsenal, haven't noticed an issue in very light winds but guess my question Backwater is why do I need 2 clips, if I put the clip to make the opening bigger
    why do I need a clip below the sock. Here is Saturday and Sunday pictures. got banded snow both days.

    Same question: I believe only one ring clip would be required per decoy, inside the ring at the bottom?

    My guess is the second one allows you to close the opening in high wind to decrease the amount of wind going I to the sock.

    That is one of the advantages of white rocks, I have never had too much wind! Unlike silosocks

    Jcneng...most important one would be the bottom one outside the ring in my opinion. The use of this one would allow you to "push" up on the opening when the neck collar is a skinny oval. The latter (skinny oval) is very common with WRs that have been deployed a lot.

    Hello All,

    As everyone already indicated the top collar keeper, is designed hold the banding open and catch more wind if needed. The bottom collar keeper is used to close up the collar for storage. That said we are completely aware if you ask 100 snow goose hunters a question, it's likely you will get 100 different answers. We designed these based off of customer feedback, they can be used for any number of reason or applications. The best part of the design is you don't need to dissemble the decoy!
