Could someone explain the process and use of a clip-in loop? I don't entirely understand it. Can a daisy chain and a hook substitute for clip in loop?

I think he is talking about what Middendorf describes in the Big Wall book he co-wrote with John Long. Middendorf said he used a couple of different length slings, each with a carabiner attached, girth hitched to his belay loop. He would use these to attach himself to the placement, instead of a Fifi hook or daisychain. I think he said he still had daisies attached to his aiders, but the 'clip in loops' or whatever he called them made everything a bit faster, streamlined, etc. I'm sure you could use an adjustable daisy or adjustable fifi instead and it would be just as if not more effecctive .
I could be totally wrong .
