Why do I have the rubber stay at one end of my quickdraws? Should I add one to the other end?

Hey Tómas, Only one end of your quickdraws should have a rubber stay on. the stay is to help make it easier for you to clip the rope through and to prevent the carabiner from cross loading. The other end should be allowed to move freely in a bolt or on a piece of gear to reduce rope drag and also prevent cross loading. Hope that helps, Dave
