If your knot-tying ability is limited to granny knots and shoelace bows, you will appreciate this heavy-duty rope and cord tensioner. Forged from aircraft-grade aluminum and then anodized, it has a load rating of 160 lb (72.5kg). It can be used for anchoring ropes, joining ropes, or creating a tensioned loop in a single rope. Ideal for anchoring tarps and tents or in securing loads, it can be used with cord or rope from 1/8" to 3/8" in diameter, including the ubiquitous twisted polypropylene variety.
Comes with an instruction sheet, and has a diagram etched onto the body showing how to make one of the most widely useful hitches.
