A nose clip

A noseclip or nose clip is a device made of wire covered in rubber or of plastic, and is worn by people during a wide range of aquatic activities such as kayaking, freediving,[1] recreational swimming, synchronized swimming and waterdance.[2] It is designed to hold the nostrils closed to prevent water from entering, or air from escaping. Some types of nose clips also feature a long band to keep the clip around the neck while it is not being used.
