How it Works
When tension is applied to the rope or webbing the TiteTie’s patented Press-n-Grip 3V Design does its work. What makes the Press-n-Grip 3V Design so special is that two results are created from one action. Firstly, a gripping effect is created on the three Vs holding the TiteTie on the rope stopping it from slipping or sliding down. Secondly, at the same time the rope or webbing squeezes the two TiteTie pieces together creating gripping force on the lower hooks.
It is also worth noting at this point that the TiteTie is securely attached to the rope or webbing and no matter how much tension or shaking to the rope or webbing, the TiteTie will not fall off. Also note that the force on the rope or webbing is centered with the TiteTie, so there’s no twisting to make the TiteTie come off the rope or webbing like some other lesser products.
When the rope or webbing is placed between the two lower hooks, the force on the lower hooks prevents the rope from slipping back, resulting in holding power without tying any knots. To relase, just pull the rope or webbing up and out of the lower hooks, so easy and very quick to release loads when in a hurry and great if you need to re-adjust, add to or re-tighten a load.
