Figure 9 Rope Tensioner
« on: September 08, 2008, 02:09:57 AM »
Anyone ever used one of these?



I keep thinking I should get one (or more) since they look handy and I can't tie a decent knot to save my life... well, except for a hangman's knot, which seems counter-productive in a life saving situation!  :o

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

I picked a couple at an Ace hardware store.  Def, I got them for the same reason your thinking about them...I can't tie any good knots.  They are great for securing loads but do not use them to climb with.  I would look at ordering the ones with the gate so you could cinch an already tied line.

How did you know Mike.  :) I've used them for securing stuff down on top of the Land Rover.They work well as do the ones with the biners on.  :)

Ever since I crushed my left foot in a climbing accident I don't climb much any more.  It's not that I have a fear, it's just that it doesn't work the way it used to!

They're cheap as chups* so there's no harm in having a couple of each size in the glovebox if you're no good at trucker's knots.
