***Due to COVID-19 we are having supply issues with the Qlipr hooks. We are allowing orders to be placed but there is at least a 4 week lead time. Customers that order in bundle quantities (125) orders will be expedited, but can still expect a 2-3 week leadtime
This easy-to-use clamping system is used for cucumbers and tomatoes. Qlipr consists of a crop hook (120 cm) with two foam-lined clamps.
Clips and plant hooks are ordered separately. We recommend ordering 2 clips for every plant-hook.
The Qlipr system consists of a metallic plant-hook with a length of one meter (3.28 feet) and two clips, which are provided with soft-padded inserts. For the lower greenhouses the measuring of the plant hook can be adjusted to 80 cm (31.5 inches). The clips are manufactured out of stainless steal. The plant-hook hangs on the stretched wire at the top of the greenhouse.
At the beginning of the growth the planthook is provided with a (jute/sisal) cord. When the young plant is approx. 50 cm (20 inches) high, the plant is to be fastened to the cord with the first clip. After the plant has grown another 50 cm (20 inches) attach the second clip. Because the plant is fastened with two clips now, the lowest clip can be removed.
Each time the plant has grown about 50 cm (20 inches), the top of the plant is fastened to the cord with the lowest clip. As the plant reaches the top of the greenhouse, the clips are fastened to the plant-hook. The cord can then be removed.
Now release the lowest clip, the upper clip will glide down along the plant-hook. The top of the plant will again be fastened to the wire with the remaining clip. The plant-hook will be put aside during the lowering.
