Snapper to tighten paracord up to 8 mm thick without knots. Fast, convenient and very safe to use for many different tasks.
Paracord lovers instantly become fond of the Fish Bones and Piranhas. These handy little helpers are the result of a very successful Kickstarter project (which is a form of crowdfunding, where people that believe in the product pay money before it has even seen the light of day.)
It comes down to tying rope/paracord without knots. The basic principle of all of these is the same: you put the tip of your paracord on the Fish Bone or Piranha and wrap it back. The friction tightens the paracord. The other side goes around the head of the fish and anchors it extremely tight. There are many demo’s on the website www.fishbonefish.com.
The big advantage of using Fish Bone or Piranha compared to using a knot is that you easily tighten the rope. Something you can hardly achieve with regular knots. It works more like a strap, but being one of the exact right length.
The Fish Bone is made of aluminum, stainless steel or titanium. The Piranha is made of stainless steel and is a bit larger than the Fish Bone. The Snapper is the biggest which is suitable for 1/4 "rope (8 mm). It also works as a bottle opener, making it AWESOME!
