    Thanks!

    What about a metal bar shaped like an elongated S? It may be lighter while still having a shape that hooks the rope in rather than letting it twist out of place. Sorry if this doesn't make sense.

    A quick note: I've heard nothing but good things about these, but it should be mentioned that they're NOT silnylon. They're polyurethane coated nylon which is not as light or compact.
