    Nite Ize Knot Bone

    Just got an email from Nite Ize about their new products.

    They have one new product that is very intriguing and I thought it would be useful for setting up and adjusting under insulation.

    The new product is what they call the Knot Bone. It makes the length of a bungee cord easy to adjust. That should make setting the length of the shock cords used on many under quilts easier.

    Nice. One more thing to add to the "I need that" list.

    I've been using a similar item. I did a write-up, a while back. They are very handy for adjusting things. I also use it for an adjujustable ridgeline set-up. I found my hooks at walmart, with a bunch of heavy bungees. I found some on-line, here (scroll down aways to the bottom).

    They look identical to mine (the 8-9mm ones w/latch). I 'em.

    i might buy the knot bone and look into making one out of aluminum at work and use it to hang with. just use amsteel and treestraps and your adjustability is so easy. wonder what the weight would be made from aluminum?

    Hey ref,
    Have you made one of these out of aluminum yet? That would be the ultimate in adjustability! I don't think it would weight that much, it looks to be hollow.
