    Thanks guys I figured. I generally assume there’s a trick I’m missing to most things. But not here. Although I’m curious about the shoebox card swing

    Hey, John! I'm feeling a little bit slow on the uptake of late. Could you explain the difference in function between the green "Slic-Key Slider" and the Red "Slic-Key Springfire"?

    Also, in one of the videos you said the tool does not work on the Singing Tree Quickie anymore, I think. Does either one of the tools still work with the Quickie?

    Also, do you know whether or not either version of the Quickie still works with the Rope Runner? I'd like to have a more substantial clip-in point for my device tender, if possible. Thanks to John in advance, or anyone else that feels they have answers to my questions.

    The Springfire has a spring in it that does the push action for you, the Slider has the push rod that you have to manually push for the action. They both work on the Rope Wrench and the Rope Runner, however the spring has to be compressed further with the longer pins on the Rope Runner and therefore creates more resistance and is not as easy to slide onto the slic pin. I prefer the Slider for the Runner and the Springfire for the Wrench. If I had to pick one I would use the Slider for both.

    The pin diameter on the Quickie had to be increased slightly and is now too big to fit the same key that works on the Runner and the Wrench.

    I haven't tried the larger diameter pin in the Rope Runner yet, but I would assume it would be too large for that application also. Anyone else know this?

    A slight bit of modification to the runner allows the new quickie pin to fit. basically just enough drilling to removed the anodizing from inside the hole. No idea if it's approved or not, but it does work and in my opinion removed so little metal as to be a non issue. we're only talking about ~1/32 of an inch at best

    Thanks, @John_KAYS. Thanks, @theatertech87. Thanks, @treebing.

    Hey, Kevin! Do you have any idea when the newly minted Quickies will become available? Also, will there be some kind of indicator in the ad copy to let us know that these quickies will fit in the Rope Runner? Thanks in advance for taking the time, if you get the chance to answer my questions.

    It was a bold move, and it allows you to use the Quickie you've already got right now for the Rope Runner you've already got. I'm betting that you're right about it doing no harm, also. Just no telling when the next iteration of Quickie will be available.
