No. You'll need docking port to do that.

Docking ports can serve as decouplers however. But you'll have to decouple them manually or through an action group as they can not be staged.

If you don't mind modding, Tweakable Everything allows enabling staging on docking ports.

I don't think the claw can be used as a decoupler, you can't have anything attached to it in the VAB.

Yeah, I feared as much. Stranded the boys on Moho by fumbling and staging their capsule... Time for a rescue mission

Decouplers use explosives to decouple. I don't think you can join back something that got blasted out. Then again, the kerbals can make spaceworthy craft from junk left lying on the side of the road...

Eitherway, good luck with your kerbals on Moho.

Heh, I've done this too. I staged off the landing gear once, and the perfectly good return ship was laying on it's side...incapable of taking off...

Good luck!
