Rope holders

I have seen some rope holders on a boat. But I dont know what the proper name is for them or where to get them.
They are made of plastic that can be fitted to an A frame or hull, a loop of elastic is attached with a small plastic ball in the middle. The elastic is passed through the coils of rope to be tidied, and then the elastic is passed through a slot in the plastic and is retained by the plastic ball.
Any ideas?

Nick.

Nik,

We have the Barton Line Tamers (details from Barton here) Available in dark grey or white £4.95 per pair.

Not on our website yet, but give me a call on 01256 478000 if this is what you're after. (Not sure if it is as the cord on these is not elastic)

We also now have the Barton Clamseal for £8.95 which is used to hold together small tears in tubes until a full repair can be made.

Mike

Hello Mike.
It is a similar idea, but not the same.
The elastic is passed through a slot and the ball on the elastic is behind the slot thus preventing the elastic from sliding through.
Nick.

Thank you John.
The trouble is, I have no cleat to hang the finished article on, which is why I am looking at these.
Also, I want to make it easier for non boaty guests to help me out with the warps.
Nick.

Limit their responsibilities to paying for fuel and fetching cocktails!
