The Smiley's nose clips are our favorite kayaking nose clips. There's no spring, just a stiff wire that bends as you pinch the nose clips tight on your nose. This wire holds the nose clips as tight as you set them, and you can shape the wire to fit your nose. The leash is sized to attach to a chin strap on your helmet, skull cap, etc. For most kayakers, these nose clips stay on better than any other with the exception of the big spring style (see Squeeze Nose Clip).
Tip: Sunscreen is slimy, and there aren't any nose clips that will stay on well if you've just put on a fresh application or excessive amount of sun screen on your nose before rolling.
Wear these nose clips so they make a "U" shape around the bottom of your nose.
