Big B Fender Hanger Taylor Made Products
For years, if you want to hang our Big B center rope to fenders vertically, your options for hanging the fender is to run a rope down to the center and tie a knot off the bottom. Now not only is that they knot unsightly, has a potential for coming in tight, but in a lot of cases it’s in the water way too much and then you’re going to prematurely wear that rope out. Well, you know what? We’ve come up with a solution.
What we’ve come up with is the Big B rope lock. Rope lock is a two piece injection molded part made from nylon 66 so they last a long time up in the weather. And one side has barbs to capture the rope.
Now, the idea is, take your fender line, make you inflame the ends of it and so that it doesn’t fray. Lay it in to the one half of the Big B rope lock. Position the other half. Now those teeth on there are going to bite down into the rope to secure it and slide the rope in to the fender, start the rope lock into the center rope tube.
Now, these rope locks will work with any fender not just ours that has a three inch ID, three quarter inch ID insert tube. And then, push and twist until you’ve got the rope lock fully inserted into the end of the fender. Now there’s a hole molded into here so any water that accumulates on your rope or runs down through it will run right out of the bottom of the rope lock to keep your rope dry.
Okay, once it’s installed on your fender, the Big B rope lock gives you a clean, finish look on the bottom that will last for years and years.
