Worth the money?
Do they make a noticeable difference?
Easier?

The hold the board together tighter, yes.

I find them to be no more difficult than the voile systme, once i'd worked out a method: work your way from one end of the board to another. So, tip clip, the nearest pull clip, then flip upside down and do the next pull clip, then end on the last tip clip. With a bit of practise (i.e., once) you're good.

If you have a Voile setup that is already tight, probably not worth it, but f you don't...The K clips are way better and well worth the $.

I've got them on a 172 Prior BC Split which I use in firm snow conditions. I'm using them with a hardboot setup on plate bindings.

I can notice a difference in really hard snow, I get less "chatter" from the board. Hard to say how much it actually makes me a better rider though. It does feel more solid which I like and I would spend the $50 again for them. It's somewhat of an incremental improvement over hooks and nothing revolutionary but I would recommend them.

On my powder board, I haven't bothered and probably won't.

I had little luck with them on my Voile Mojo, which has cap construction; your mileage may vary depending on the board.
There's another thread on here about them - take a look.

I wound up taking them off and putting the voile clips back on.

I will sell mine for $35 if you want 'em.

My experience is that they make things much tighter regardless. Just my :twocents:
