    simple and functional
    by Keith from Woodstock, Georgia on May 29, 2014
    I bought this not sure if I would like or need it. Now that I have it along with a new boat cover, I really like how it functions and makes it easy to tighten the drawstring.

    Buy this... You won't regret it!
    by Devin from Midlothian, Illinois on May 27, 2014
    The cincher is awesome and makes securing the cover as easy as can be. I wasn't sure if we would use/need it but now I don't know why we didn't have one for our old cover. Very easy to use and inexpensive.

    The "Cincher"
    by Gregory from Fayetteville, North Carolina on September 09, 2013
    I recently bought the Cincher along with a boat cover. Love the ease the Cincher provides when tightening down the draw strings. Just pull and tighten. And the release of tension is a breeze also with just a push of release mechanism. Great product, great buy.

    Cincher
    by Lawrence from Littleton, Massachusetts on July 31, 2013
    Greatest product invented. Thread the line thru and pull tight and cover is done. I ordered another one as a spare. Best 20 bucks spent, well worth the money.

    The Cincher - Westland
    by David from Rocklin, California on July 15, 2013
    This is a really good product. Certainly makes tightening up the perimeter rope for my boat cover much easier and faster, I feel very confident knowing the Cincher is holding is securely holding the rope around my boat which prevented the boat cover from coming off the boat. It is also very easy to release the tension without hurting ones fingers. I would highly recommend this product. DP.

    Well made handy
    by Joel from Santa Fe, New Mexico on June 09, 2013
    I am impressed with the quality of this gadget - it appears to be well made and substantial. It is easy to use - just depress the catch lever and thread the rope through by rotating the catch wheel. Once on the rope, using the cincher is fast - hook it onto a fixed point on the boat or trailer and full the rope to the desired tension. To release, pull on the rope to release tension on the catch mechanism and depress the release catch lever. Note: For my 15' Drift Boat, I found that two of these were required - there wasn't enough room to hook the Cincher onto a loop at the other end of the rope, so I had to hook both ends onto the trailer. This might not be true for a boat with greater beam. For best results, cross the ends under the stern of the boat to opposite corners of the trailer. Jury is still out on durability - I've only had these for a couple of weeks.

    Must Have for Draw String Covers
    by Matthew from Appleton, Wisconsin on June 03, 2013
    This product worked very well with my new Sharkskin drawstring cover. It's very easy to use, and is much faster than tying a knot every time. My only complaint is that I wish the hook on the end was a snap hook, instead of an open hook so that the rope that you're attaching to it doesn't fall off.

    The Cincher - Westland
    by Derek from New Braunfels, Texas on May 22, 2013
    This cincher is fantastic for pulling the pull cord on your boat cover together. Simple to use and release. Definitely worth getting if you have a draw string rope on your boat cover.

    cincher and boat cover
    by Glenn from Topeka, Kansas on March 08, 2013
    I recently ordered a custom boat cover with cincher for my 1996 Cobalt 232. I like the fabric but the fit at the nose of the boat could have been better. More important I was dissappointed that the cincher did not come with some sort of fabric pocket to keep it from rattling and scratching the side of the boat when in transit with the cover on. When I purchased the boat in 1996 this very same company provided the factory boat cover and the cincher was built into the cover and had a canvas with velcro built into it where the cincher could be enclosed.

    One handy tool
    by James from El Dorado Hills, California on October 09, 2012
    Lucky for me there were three in the box when i opened it. This little device is a keeper when it comes to hold down tarps or covers and snugging things down. Anything where you would tie a rope, use this instead.

    Talk about easy.
    by Chad from Sioux Falls, South Dakota on October 09, 2012

    a great product
    by Charles from Hernando Beach, Florida on September 13, 2012
    My boat is stored on a lift which precludes me from being able to reach the draw rope at the center of the transom. With the "Cincher", I can stand on the lift dock and draw the hem rope to a snug fit.

    custom cobalt mooring cover
    by Edwin from Arcadia, California on September 10, 2012
    Very happy with the material. Easier to handle than the original cover. My cover is custom and has openings for a ski tower. The velcro pull over wraps are very tight at the tower base. We had trouble pulling them closed. Perhaps a little more width in material would resolve this? My boat is a 2001 206 Cobalt with a factory ski tower.

    Cincher is great
    by Harold from Warrensburg, Illinois on August 18, 2012
    I have always tied a square knot on the cover cinche rope. Thought the cincher looked like a good idea, and it sure is. I will always have one on my covers fron now on.

    Chincher
    by Scott from Ellsworth, Wisconsin on June 01, 2012
    The only thing that kept it from a five (5) was if the hook was coated so if it does rub on something it doesn't take the paint off. Awesome product. Scott

    The Cincher is FANTASTIC!!!!
    by Bryan from Fenton, Missouri on May 10, 2012
    Are you tired of tying the boat cover rope that snugs the cover to the boat? It takes too much time to untie the knot to loosen the cover. This "Cincher" was the answer! Make a loop knot or schnell in one rope on the rear of the boat cover. You then run the other rope from the boat cover through the pulley, which has a cleat system inside of it. Hook the loop knot in the hook of the cincher, pull the rope tight on the pulley side, cleat it, DONE!!! The cleat has a button to push to release and then unhook the loop. This is better than what I have done in the past and well worth the inexpensive investment.

    cincher
    by Steve from Warren, Michigan on November 18, 2011
    it works very good , they should tell you that you need two of them. You have to tie a knot on 1 end to hook the cincher. There also are instruction with this how to use it. If you buy a cover you will want this works great

    works good but you need two.
    by Jonathan from Glen Burnie, Maryland on October 08, 2011
    Product works great. But they lack in telling you that you need two of them. iboats needs to inform the customer that you need one for each end of rope. The unit will not hold two ropes. I bought it for a cover which has two ropes that need trying down and they sell this product as an accessory but it sells in single package and they don't mention anywhere that you need two of them,.

    useful
    by Severin from Victoria, British Columbia on October 03, 2011
    I use this to keep my boat cover's perimeter rope cinched up. The downside is that I need to make a loop (knot) on one end of the rope the Cincher goes on the other end and pulls on the loop. Easy to use. I don't have to pull hard to keep the boat cover snug. Note that I tuck the Cincher under the boat cover so it doesn't rest on the outdrive directly (which would probably scratch it over time). I think this is probably a better alternative than the all-plastic cinchers. Note that your rope has to fit inside the Cincher pulley, so cut your rope well (I used an Xacto knife blade heated with my blowtorch, to make a perfectly straight, sealed cut).

    The cincher is a fantastic product for cinching the 1/2 inch cord on the bottom of the boat cover. Recommend including two cinchers in each boat cover package.

    The Simple Cincher
    by Danny from Downingtown, Pennsylvania on August 01, 2011
    Extremely satisfied with this product. A nice upgrade from the "manual" cincher that is included with most other tops of lower quality. The ratcheting mechanism makes it much easier and intuitive to tighten and loosen the draw cord around the top. Highly recommend it!
