Step1 Fill a large bucket with warm water. Step2 Add rope wash. (You can purchase it at a BlueWater retailer; follow the link in Resources for a list of locations. If you don't want to travel to the nearest store, you can request that they ship you some.) The instructions on the rope wash package will tell you how much to add, based on how many gallons of water you have in your bucket. Step3 Add your rope to the wash. Step4 Start working the dirt off the rope with your hands. Swish the rope around and flip it over a few times. Spend about 15 minutes doing this. Step5 Allow your rope to sit in the wash for 2 hours. Step6 Squeeze the water out of your rope as you slowly take it out of the bucket. Step7 Lay out your rope in the sunshine to dry.

What are webbing slings and what are they used for?

Webbing slings are flat belt straps, generally made from hard wearing polyester, which makes the equipment both robust and versatile. Primarily used in the lifting and lowering industry, slings are not as strong as their lifting counterparts - wire rope. However, it is the flexibility of the material which makes it so popular in the lifting and lowering industry, due to its ability to both wrap around odd-shaped loads, as well as objects that have a wide bearing surface. The durability and versatility of webbing slings, which make them so popular in the industrial environment, means they are also used in other settings and scenarios, including vehicle towing, to aid pipe laying, and in the accessing of trees. This infographic from Rope Services Direct covers some of the various uses and applications of webbing slings worldwide. It is a good read for those new to the lifting and lowering industry, as well as those who have been involved in it for years!

Trucker's knot. I use this because it provides great tension and offers a quick release. It's great for mainlining a tarp or even a clothes line.

I have a Booda Rope Bird Perch and I wanted to know if there was a specific way to clean this product?

Washing a rope perch is actually quite simple. All you need is a product to rid of bird waste - such as **** Off. Begin by spraying the rope with this product to loosen debris. Rinse your rope under warm water and place inside a pillow case. Put the pillow case in the laundry machine and wash. Make sure to air dry the rope.

I'm sure that beefs and rodrigo have misunderstood vpbjo's problem: to wit... You have to disconnect the caribiner to load the gri-gri. If you drop it on the gym floor, that's ok. If you drop it half...

Straight from the Instruction Manual: This product is a belay device for
the leader or second on a rope.
It has been developed for indoor
wall climbing or for climbing
on well-protected sport routes
where anchors meet the UIAA
standard. It should not be used
for mountaineering or adventure

Any modification is a unknown change in the devices individual load bearing rating, and a compromise in the safey of anyone who would be connected to said device at any time after the modification.

What are Belay devices?

These are mechanical friction brake devices used when belaying. They allow careful control of the belay rope. Their main purpose is to allow locking off of the rope with minimal effort. Many types of belay devices exist, and some of these may additionally be used as descenders, for controlled descent on a rope, that is, abseiling or rappeling. There are passive camming devices and active camming devices. Passive camming devices rely on the brake hand and a carabiner to lock off the rope. Sticht plates and the Air Traffic Controller ATC are examples of passive camming devices. Active camming devices have a built-in mechanism that locks off the rope without the help of any other pieces of equipment. A GriGri is an example. The offset cam in the GriGri locks off the rope automatically to catch a falling climber, much like a seatbelt in a car locks off to hold a passenger securely. The GriGri fails at around 9 kN of force. However, a GriGri, with its technology, often makes belayers become less vigilant. The GriGri is not a hands-free belay device. One mistake with the GriGri is reverse threading it. Reverse threading means to thread the GriGri the wrong way around, rendering the camming action useless. However, in a fall, with a reverse threaded GriGri, bending the rope sharply under the GriGri provides more than enough friction to hold a falling climber. An example of traditional belay is the Body Belay or the Hip Belay, where the rope is wrapped around the body to provide enough friction to catch a climber. This is often used in Alpine climbing, where the routes are easy, and the belay must be fast. Ice climbers often use a boot belay, where the rope is wrapped around one boot, thus providing friction.
