    Amazingly quick rope securing device

    So it's really off topic, but I've just discovered these last week and I'm really excited after using them for a bunch of things already. Maybe I just don't get out enough.

    Nite Ize Carabiner Figure 9 Small from Campmor

    Night Ize Large Figure 9 Combo from Campmor

    I skeptically bought a few at bass pro last week. Yesterday I went to REI and bought bunch more of them. They come in a few different sizes, and some come with carabiner clips on one end. It takes about 1.5 seconds or less to cinch down rope, and surprisingly secure. I've use them to tie down loads, tow another kayak, cinch a drawstring for my boat cover, and super-quickly adjust the height of the kayaks I have hanging from my garage ceiling. (I made an electric hoist and pulley system to store them up out of my way, but that's for a whole different brag thread).

    Does it cause any undue wear to the rope?

    Couldn't tell you yet. I have to think that the little grabbers will fray the rope over time. How many uses it'll take, I couldn't tell you. I couldn't see any wear yet on what I've used, but it's only been perhaps a dozen workings. And for me, I'd happily spring $10 for 100ft of rope every now and then for the doggone convenience. Definately not made for life supporting use, but handy as heck.

    Looks like it would be quick to use.

    Now that looks cool.

    And you saw it first here on DC.

    Looks very similar to the device we have used for a few years now at work, and it will fray with heavy use. We don't use them for people, we use them for equipment only now.

    Not to jack the threat, but I see that your from MI. Where do you go kayaking? And what type of kayakin do you do? I have done some simple canoing here and some white water rafting down south, but those kind of rivers don't exist here, at least to my knowledge.

    I just bought a couple kayaks and have so far only been on Kent Lake, (NW of Detroit) and the Huron river (which feeds Kent Lake). The river was slow moving when I was on it last year, but I've heard that it can get slightly squirrelly after some good rain. Too new to try any white water stuff in a kayak.

    That's a cool concept. I think I would still put a safety knot or two behind it if I had anything heavy on the other end, but for a quick clothesline or bear bag, sure. And no way in heck I'd trust my weight to it, either.

    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    These are great

    I use them daily and might change a cord every 2-3 months, and with 550 cord and the like it makes these little beauties cheap and easy to maintain. Hey Sixto if you can't use these on people how about a pocket full of prussic handcuffs?
