The quick and easy way to finish rope ends. Prevents unraveling. Forms a permanent, flexible coating. Available in multiple colors to match or color code rope.
This stuff has been impressive. I had 2-25' docklines as I could not find them in the 15' length I needed so I brushed the stuff on where I needed to make my cut, made the cut, then dipped the tag-end 2-3 times and the lines came out perfect. I wrapped some Rescue Tape on one of the tag ends before dipping and it also worked out well as the stuff sticks and has some give to it so it should last a while on my new reflective dock lines from Shakespeare.
I used the Dip-It Whip-It to secure the ends of 12" pieces of rope I was using to make a way to quickly identify our luggage on the airport carousel. In the past, I just knotted the rope and let it be but it always shredded at the ends. I bought the Dip-It and after following the instructions, I had 8 pieces of rope with tight ends. The stuff is a bit messy to work with so you need to be aware of that. Otherwise, it is a cheap alternative to purchasing caps for the ends of rope.
It is a little on the goopy side, so you need to be careful with your application, but. it is very good! I used it to put a protective coating over my splices and lock stitched whippings to seal everything! it works very well, probably the best thing you could use on synthetic ropes! I am impressed with the end result. remember though,, several thin coats, not one heavy coat!
I whipped my lines first with nylon cord then dipped in this...it works great! I think it will be a long time before the lines wear enough to unravel. If you don't whip them first, I'd suggest dipping a couple of times at least. Good stuff, though.
If you have braided rope the ends need to be whipped. I use waxed thread but covering the wax thread with this is even better. I always keep a can of this on hand. Good for grips on tools too.
This product worked well in "whipping" the ends of our new nylon rope. The brush attached to the lid made application fast and efficient.
This stuff works. Can be sort of messy, so dont do it on a nice surface or in nice clothes.
I ordered green.I got red.I decided to go ahead but dipping it left it kind of bulbous or lumpy.The rope is green so it looked kind of like Christmas.I cut all the ends off and just used a soldering iron to melt the ends,much better.Total waste of money.
