Bi-Mart’s representative has enthusiastically agreed to feature Jeff Dahl’s innovative product, the LoopRope®, in the Auto Care department of their 72 stores across Washington, Oregon, and Idaho. Dahl expressed excitement about this partnership with Bi-Mart, known for its wide array of household and outdoor products, particularly since his invention itself has such a wide variety of uses.
LoopRope® is a revolutionary fastening system that was invented in 2009 as a safer and more convenient alternative to the bungee cord. Dahl hatched the idea of a knot-free tie down in his Medford, OR garage after a frustrating trip to the dump. After a trial-and-error method, he eventually invented a shock cord crimped into permanent loops and secured with LoopClips®, which are S-shaped steel carabiners.
Together with Bi-Mart, the tie-down has also been picked up by US retailers Walmart, Camping World, Amazon and featured internationally in Ireland, Japan, Australia, Lebanon, and soon, the Philippines. Dahl is rushing to keep up with orders, a good problem to have for a new business in this economy.

The LoopRope® is made of one continuous piece of shock cord fastened together to create permanent loops. LoopRope® comes in 3, 4, and 5-foot lengths. Each LoopRope® comes with two dual-sided, stainless steel LoopClips®. One 5-foot LoopRope® gives you 10 custom tie-down lengths and over 18 attachment points. Use it everywhere; it’s secure, fast and easy. Users are discovering many different ways to secure items: check out video examples on the website. www[dot]LoopRope[
