Although the device has a useful intent, in practice it is a bother to have this jangling off the deck, and requires some effort to pace the paddle in it during a rest. Better are elastic deck lines with wooden balls that allow a paddler to rapidly tuck the blade under during a rest break. Thus, this item is unnecessary. I use it as a traditional carabineer to hang my PFD on a hook in the garage.
