Rope Tools and Rope Care Supplies

Your climbing line is an important tool which carries your life on it every day - take care of it! Not only will you want to store and transport it an arborist rope bag, but you'll want to keep it clean and dry, and give it the occasional wash! Arborist ropes should never be cleaned with chemicals, abrasives, or anything which may damage the integrity of the rope fibers - use Rope Soap instead. We also have colored electrical tape, rope-sealer, and an electric rope cutter to help seal rope ends.

Rope Washing Bag

Rope Washing Bag

PMI Bokat Rope Washer

Washing Tube

The PMI Bokat rope washing tube has scrubbing bristles inside which will clean rope from 9mm to 18mm (3/4"). Hook up to a hose and pull your rope through to scrub it clean, helping to prolong the working life of the rope.

Niceguydave sez; "This is the best rope washer on the market. I have been using this for several months after trying others that didn't work. There is no substitute for a washing machine to get a rope absolutely clean, but often that can be a pain and get one into trouble at home. Tree work is very hard on rope, we are constantly impregnating the fibers with dirt, bark, pitch, etc. This rope washer fastens to the hose spigot and with the "Astroturf" bristles it floats dirt particles and bark off of the rope, making even weekly cleaning very easy. Clean ropes have a longer lifespan and this will require use of the laundry only for pitch removal. An excellent investment for the professional."
