Rope play might be simple for expert knot tiers, but for the rest of us, there’s LoopAlien. This lightweight, diminutive tool is machined from 6061-T6 aluminum and largely simplifies attaching and adjusting cords: just wrap the cord around a branch, tent peg, or other, then secure it by passing it through the larger loop. And, while they’re not designed to support humans, one LoopAlien can hold well over 100 lbs without slipping – more than enough for most anything in your backyard or at the campsite.
