Additional pulley with quick link.




Price:  $4.95

The engineered design of all of our rope is to maximize strength while providing excellent flexibility and handling while being resistant to harsh outdoor environments.  Our rope serves many applications and has special qualifications for use with antennas (wire or otherwise), tower and mast support, hauling, marine, banners, and signs. Other uses include shade sail support, tarping, and archers' bow string follower line. Also perfect for vertical structures such as scaffolding or tree limb control.


High breaking strength: Our ropes are made in USA mills and have the highest breaking strengths available in comparable diameters than our competitors.  Why pay for lower strength when you can get comparable rope that is much stronger?


Polyester vs. Dacron™, what is the difference?  Dacron™ is a registered trademark of the DuPont corporation.  Dacron™ is also double braided polyester rope (just like ours), but due to the trademarked name, it commands a higher selling price.  All of our rope is also double braided polyester.


Laughing at the elements:  All our rope is resistant to UV light, mildew, rot, and stretch (unlike nylon which does stretch).  It also has a very low coefficient of friction (it is somewhat slippery and can glide over tree limbs, etc. without digging in or sawing through.)

                                     ROPE

Dacron rope is super ! Lasts extremely well outside through all kinds of weather, temp's and UV. I have used all of the sizes, including the 1/2" Gin pole rope, 7050 lb. test ! Also use it for hauling, tree felling, and on my boat. These ropes are "Great stuff" and made in USA. I have a vendor relationship with KF7P, great guy, honest as day is long and fully devoted to customer satisfaction.  K1PEK

Paracord is one of the most versatile cords on the planet. It’s high-tech materials and construction enables it to be lightweight, strong, and compact. With an incredible 550 lb tensile strength, paracord can easily perform tasks and jobs that other similar cords cannot. One of the most important design features of paracord is the 7 inner strands of core. By pulling out the internal strands you can turn 50ft into hundreds of feet of usable cordage. All these features make it the perfect rope to carry daily, whether it’s in your backpack, vehicle, garage, or in an apparel item.


Quality: Our 550 paracord with 7 strand inner cores and that is exactly what you get, no fake polypropylene sheath or cheap filler cores.
