    WTB: Line Locks

    I'm after a dozen Line Locks if anyone has a few spare?

    It's the ones which MLD use on their Trailstar and Duos like these ..

    The Line Lok company is based out of the UK. You may have luck getting them directly from Clam Cleats

    I don't think they have the type I'm after unfortunately, the website seems to be down at the moment too.

    Ah yes so you do, do they come in different sizes Paul? I'm after some to grip 2.2mm Exped Dyneema, about 12 of them too

    To my knowledge they only make the one size made to fit and work with 3mm cords. Most smaller ones like the 2.2 will hold to a point then let the line slip with no control. Unfortunately they have not woken up to the fact that most campers and backpackers are using smaller lines than they were 10 years ago.

    Thanks Paul

    So I've got to decide to either change my cords to 3mm or look at another solution. The other line loks work okay but you can never go shorter than half the length of the cord, well you can but it's back to knots again.

    I might just treat myself to some of that reflective cord you have, plus a few more bits, I'll have to see how Chrimbo goes.

    Pretty good postage rates to Australia so UK should be fair.

    Thanks for that Benny, that's a good price

    It looks like they might work with narrower cord after all ..
