The following review was written by the editorial department of Chesapeake Bay Magazine.

The next time you need to add an intermediate tie-off point to a line, instead of improvising with a tired line scrap from the bottom of a sail locker, try the LineGrabber ($14.95). Made from Dyneema, this super-tough length of cord has loops spliced into each end, which make it simple to wrap around any line, cinch tight to secure it in place, then attach the other end to any secondary line or piece of equipment you need.
