Dogbone rope wrench

Here is the Dogbone Rope Wrench that I use, notice how the swivel link allows the installation of the rope on line.

Dan, the last pic was one he sent for Kevin to try and it has the singing tree logo on it.

Re: Dogbone rope wrench

I will post pictures of it set up, as soon as my camera batteries are re-charged. : )

I have posted a picture of this Dogbone before, but it did not show how the rope was inserted.

The purple one was from an earlier trial. Here they are pre-anodized

Thanks Gordon although I am a unicender user as you know. How's the OAR coming on?

Re: Dogbone rope wrench

Gordon, the pin on the swivel link.... would it not be beneficial to have it going into a slot/keyway to reduce possibility of the link twisting under load?
