The LoopAlien (TM)

Makes attaching and adjusting cords a snap. Use it on tents, tarps, canopies, cargo, backpacks, strollers and more!

la-project-main7 IMG_0992 (Large) al-yellowcorduse-002 LoopAlien UFA The LoopAlien ™ is very easy to use as shown in the video and pictures. To adjust, simply release the tension on the cord and reposition. Once the tension is reapplied the LoopAlien(tm) will hold fast. This small, efficient design has been tested using 1.75 mm cord with no slipping. In fact, the more tension you put on the rope, the more the LoopAlien(tm) grips it. The LoopAlien(tm) works with cords all the way up to paracord size. The 1.75 mm and 2.2 mm cords are easier to adjust than the larger paracord sized cords.
The LoopAlien(tm) allows you to quickly open the loop on the cord and wrap around a tree, rock or your buddy that’s just standing around watching you set up camp and re-attach without having to tie or untie a knot. The LoopAlien(tm) is so easy you can use it with your eyes closed.

Available in the following materials: Aluminum & Titanium
