So many uses, why knot? The April 2007 issue of Backpacker magazine says, "This tiny piece of aluminum makes tightening a line a knot- and curse-free task." The Figure 9 eliminates the frustration of tying, adjusting, and untying knots. It makes it easy to secure a line with maximum tension and also to quickly and safely release the line. Perfect for securing loads or staking out a tent or tarp. The Figure 9 is made from strong aluminum and has instructions for use laser engraved on it. Fits rope diameters from 1/16" to 3/16" with a load limit of 50 lb.
Packaging: Two Figure 9 rope tighteners and two 6' lengths of 5/32" diameter rope
