CED Reverse Plug Retention Clip
This unique Steel clip is designed to capture the recoil spring plug on 1911s & 2011s which use the reverse plug system. Replaces bent paper clips or small nails which are cumbersome to use. Slip the loop portion of this clip over the guide rod and slide until the end is positivity engaged with the retention hole in the rod. This allows for a controlled release of the slide in disassembling a pistol by capturing the recoil spring until it is purposely removed. Dis-assembly becomes smoother, easier, and prevents mishaps. A perfect addition to the workbench, range bag, and cleaning kit. Buy several and always be prepared when the need arises!

Beats trying to get a paper clip bent and then held in place. This item stays in place and is easy to use. Highly recommended!
It's a bent paperclip...

Part works as advertised, but how many stars can you give a reverse plug retention clip? It snapped on with minimal effort and held. I would buy again if I didn't have one. It does make teardown easier... However I would suggest just ponying up and buying Dawson tool less guide rods.
Works like a charm

Should have purchased one of these little bad boys a long time ago. Makes breaking done my Trubor and Aegis so much easier. Thanks Dawson.
