Dock line storage / holder

Hello,

I was on a friends boat and saw several devices he uses to store his spare dock lines. I tried to add a photo and could not figure it out, so I will try to describe this item. It is black plastic, approx. 2" long, that has a slot in the front of it from top down. A 1/8" diameter cord hangs from the black plastic piece, and the cord has a plastic ball that can be dropped in the plastic piece's slot.

Does anyone know the brand or where I can find these devices?

Can a photo be added to a posting without having to reference a web address?

Thank you

Use "go advanced" post/reply and add the attachment using additional option "attach file" way below the text box. Just like this one ...

I think this is what you're describing:

Spare lines go into the lazarette without a pouch.

SeaDog has a jam cleat that is close but does not have the plastic ball to go into the slot.

I used several Nicro Fico line holders. Similar but not the same. i tried looking them up but nope, Ronstan bought them out it appears and don't offer them.

There will be something similar by one of the sailboat gear mfgrs. though I'll bet. If you are close to a good chandler try your photo with them. Maybe they will have something similar.

With floating docks the norm here, I rarely see the need to adjust fender height. Fender lines are tied with seaman-like knots from the steel railings. (When underway, the fenders lay out-of-the-way on the wide decks while keeping their lines undisturbed.)

Mark,
They are line holders for storage of extra, unused coiled lines. I use them for the tails of my docking lines, keeps the extra neat and out of the way.

I merely coil the docking lines and hang them from the railings. Got lots of "Ts" on the railings for hanging lines. Extra coiled lines go to the lazarette.

I use these to tie up lines and other things like keeping a boat hook hanging on the flybridge ladder, very handy and durable. Mine are 6 years old and I've never had one break or deteriorate and they are out in the sun.

These looks very interesting. Multiple uses, well beyond on the boat. I can see plenty of uses in a garage, on a truck ... anywhere the cables/wires and lines/ropes are concerned.

EDIT: found them: http://www.topshelfmarine.com/produc...sudl2c9540hnm3

Care to share the name, or an online link to a product page ... please.

Wow, those Cruisers Utility Straps are EXPENSIVE! $15.49 each.

I just coil my line then wrap it around the bow rail. It's tough to explain so I'll try to upload a picture. Basically all you do after you coil the line is hold it alongside the bow rail. Then you reach through, grab the bottom end of the coil and bring it up through the top end of the coil. Then snug it tight.

Like I said, it's easier to load a picture than to explain the procedure so everyone understands it.

The beauty of doing it this way is you can move the lines to wherever you want without having to move a line holder. Plus, the line can still be attached to a cleat and you do this with the bitter end.

And they look like it would be easy to drop one overboard. Do they float?

I bought 2 sets - 12 total straps. I thought they were pricey but after using them for a few years I got over that. Another thing I like about them is be able to hook 2 or more together for a larger loop.
