How easily it comes off your rod depends on the diameter of the rod blank.* But since the legs are made to splay out in a straight line under pressure from a fish, I wouldn't use it for open water bank fishing.* It's made specifically to save your ice rod from going down a hole. That's all!
You attach it to your rod by laying the rod in the hole un the upper left. Then you insert the leg and screw it down, holding the rod in place with the little black rubber nipple. It's not a quick removal if your rod has any siameter to it.
