“What a neat piece of equipment!” enthuses the National Sales Manager of Marine Military Expos. The Marine West Show has an average of 3800 attendees, the majority being active duty Marines from Pendelton, Miramar and the surrounding areas. The shows are very unique in that they are held on base so that the participants are able to interact with the highest number of Marines in the area.
The LoopRope® can be used by Marines to strap duffel bags, firearms, bedrolls, and tents to ATV racks and truck beds. LoopRope®
Initial permutations included lengths of rope with hitch knots using plastic zip-ties to create the tensions he needed, which worked but not the way he wanted. "The zip-ties failed and sewing shock cord together proved to damage the cord,” he said. Trial and error led Dahl to forming permanent loops in shock cord by crimping aluminum ferrules and covering those with a plastic heat shrink. His invention went patent-pending the latter part of 2009 and has been picked up by many American retail giants such as Wal-Mart, Amazon, Costco, and Camping World, and by retailers overseas in Ireland, Australia, and Japan.
