A simple device makes line handling safe and easy.

Making an attachment point on a line without making a knot is simple. Boaters just need the LineGrabber from Davis Instruments. With a spliced and sewn loop at each end, it works by cinching tight around a line. The more tension that is applied to the LineGrabber, the more it constricts.

Compatible with any line up to 1″ in diameter, this handy tool is made of 1/4″ ultra-high modulus fiber and holds up to 2,000 lbs. This material is tough enough to grab a chain, cleat, pulpit or handrail, and strong enough to help unload a fouled sheet.

Perfect for rafts, boats and kayaks, it can help secure an anchor or create a temporary mooring. In addition, LineGrabber can attach to harnesses, pulleys or gently to car tops where a loop is ideal to clip to.

Owners simply use a basic Prusik hitch to tie or adjust LineGrabber in seconds. For any size line from 1/2″ to 1″ in diameter, users loop the LineGrabber twice around and through itself each time. Cinching it tight then creates a strong, secure attachment point. For lines smaller than 1/2″ in diameter, the LineGrabber can be looped around three times.
