How to Use the Rytan RY5798 Plug Spinner

Have a look at the RY5798 Compact Plug Spinner by Rytan on CLKsupplies. It uses the same push-button technology as the RY57 but with a compact design. With its low profile and hook at its end, you can put it in your pick set or shirt pocket, and it's not going to take up too much space.

You can also buy replacement blades if you were to break them.
