Original Fish Bone (Titanium)
A no knots cord tightener specifically designed for paracord and any rope or cord 5/32" and below.

The fish eye doubles as a quick release.

Function: Easy to set up and even easier to undo.
The smooth edges keep it from catching on other gear while in use. It can be used "in line", "in loop", "quick release" or however else you can think of.
Compact but mighty, a few simple wraps does all the work.

The Fish Bone is an amazing tool, I've used it for various tasks and have many more things I want to try. I've used the Fish Bone as an adjustable belt buckle, I have made it into bracelets and necklaces. From a very low height I plan to try it as a ridgeline and potentially attempt it as a hammock suspension, from a very low height. my only complaint is that i wish larger versions of these existed for 5-7mm cords a titanium tool of that size would be exquisite.
Great product. Allows for quickly securing all types objects, without the need for knots. Key to this is convenience, both applying and removing. Easy to keep one available just those times. Once you learn the procedure, you will find many uses.
This product was gifted to me as a result of excellent customer service from awesomeforsale.com and while I don't have any specific use for it I can see how it could be very useful. A few things I have noticed about it. It's small which means that unless I keep it attached to one end of a rope I will likely lose it. More of an observation than a complaint but keeping it attached to one end of a rope decreases the utility of both items. It's designed for use with an end of a rope rather than a bight, I have experimented with using a bight so that I would use the same rope for other purposes or further tie downs with varying results but the eye is a little small to fish a bite of 550 cord through. Maybe an increase in the size of the eye would be good.
Handy for great knots, I highly recommend the titanium fish bone. : )
I've spent a fair bit of time learning the essential knots as an adult: from kayaking and hunting to running a theater and volunteering with the Civil Air Patrol, there's a lot of times I need a good, study knot. These fish bones are incredibly useful. I use one to keep my each of my lengths of ropes and paracord tied up, so they're always available when I need to tie down a boat, lash props to the stage, or just create a sturdy line to hang wet clothes on (the clothesline video was a life-saver).
First, I did not buy my Ti fishbones, they were a gift. I was grateful for the gift, of course, but since I prefer HMWPE cordage (7/64" Amsteel, or its little brother, 1.75mm Lash-It), to paracord, and since paracord featured so much in the description, I was afraid it wouldn't work well. HMWPE is very slippery by comparison, and does not hold knots well under weight. Well, I tried the fishbone with the Amsteel, and I love it! Mind you, I have not yet subjected it to my weight to see if it slips there, but I will soon (from a very safe height, hanging in my hammock). As is, my fishbones are in use, with paracord, holding down some luggage as a relative is moving. :-) Thanks Eldrick and Brent!!!
