Sturdy and reliable, our new OCTOPUS safety stopper enhances your safety as it efficiently prevents your rope from tripping. The semi-flat top gives a clean edge to the carabiner, while the bottom, with its conical shape, allows your rope cable to be "pushed" outward, with no grip to attach it to. After our prototype tests, we chose a wider diameter than the tennis ball (75mm vs. 65mm). Finally, the bright fluorescent yellow color makes it more visible.
It works perfectly with rope from 10 to 12 mm. Can be used with smaller ropes up to 8mm.
Regarding the installation process, the stopper is divided into two parts. A simple knot is placed in its center, and 3 stainless steel screws (standard cross head) make it easy to finish holding it in place. It is made of ABS, which is a strong plastic used for example to make LEGO: after all, we're just big kids playing in the water!
