Cool Product to Know About: Fish Bone Knotless Gear Tie

Fish Bone Knotless Gear Ties SetI discovered a most clever piece of equipment this last weekend and couldn’t wait to share it with all of you.

It’s called a Fish Bone Knotless Gear Tie. The name says it all. It looks like a fish skeleton and you use it in place of tying knots in cord.

Variety of cords and tiesAlthough my Eagle Scout hubby knows how to tie a variety of solid knots, my one accomplishment is a simple macramé knot (square knot) – so these Gear Ties are extremely attractive to me. There are lots of different ways to wrap the cord and achieve a tight knot. It’s easy and quick. Different size Fish Bones (and metals) work for different sizes of rope, cord or string, and support a variety of weights.

The best part is that once I’m done with the cord, I don’t have the hassle of trying to pry those knots loose again. Simply unwrap the cord and I’m done!

I can think of all kinds of uses: for hiking (securing extra gear a backpack) and camping (setting up a clothesline, anchoring guide lines for tents or tarp shelters). The Piranha gear tie even doubles as a bottle opener! Piranha Gear TieOr you can use ropes and Fish Bone ties for organizing the garage – or tying off gear on your truck. Or get artistic and make a paracord bracelet with the Fish Bone as the decorative tie. Let your imagination loose!

And here’s the icing on the cake. I love it when I can find products made here in the USA. What’s even nicer is these are manufactured in Huntington Beach, CA.

I encourage you to check out their website and watch the how-to videos.

Hubby and I will be trying these out during an upcoming road /camping trip. I’ll let you know how we used them and how they worked. I think they will definitely come in handy!

Would this product be helpful for you?  Have you used them before?

      How nice of you to take time to comment here, Eldrick! It’s always my pleasure to tell others about such well-made and useful products. Just FYI we discovered your company in Del Mar, CA while attending the December gun show. We were looking for new preparedness, camping and survival products. The guys manning your table were informative and fun to talk to. And we thought it was doubly cool that the gear ties were being manufactured right there in CA. We’ve since moved to the PNW – but we still have our gear ties and they go with us on every camping trip. Thanks again for stopping by! Best Wishes!
