To create a way to hang a hammock that minimizes damage to trees using our own Toggle Ropes. We toyed around with the idea of re-designing our existing toggle rope but that only led to additional and unnecessary acessories. We discovered that the existing design in our 10' toggle rope was more than adequate to do what we were looking for - a way to hang a hammock while minimizing tree damage!
In doing so, we quickly realized that there may no longer be a need for using expensive and unnecessary acessories just to prevent tree damage. Our Toggle Rope, or ANY rope of suitable length could be used to tie the TSIB hitch.
The TSIB hitch was designed by THE Ship in a Bottle. It all seemed so simple. Jim, a retired navy veteran and no stranger to knots and marlinespike, set about the task. The TSIB Hitch is so simple in fact that it is almost hard to believe it is not already illustrated in leading reference books for knots.
Please take a moment to REVIEW OUR VIDEOs on this page and familiarize yourself with this powerful hitch and other useful applications for our Toggle Rope.
Introducing the TSIB Hitch. Strong, reliable, and easy to set up and take down. Innovation from THE Ship in a Bottle.
For the remainder of September, purchase our Toggle Rope Set for a discounted price of $64.95. Our very unique Toggle Ropes are now available in a set comprising (2) ten foot toggle ropes, (4) five foot toggle ropes, 4 Extra Toggles, and 100 feet of para cord. The set comes complete with the Cordura drawstring bag, pictured to the left with the toggle ropes.
Toggle ropes have been around for centuries in nautical applications so the idea itself is not new. British Commandos and Paratroopers used them in WWII.
Our patent-pending Toggle Rope improves on the WWII "commando rope" design by using a loosely-braided 550-cord that offers much more flexibility on a broad range of camping, rescue, and utility applications. This no-knot design makes the rope easier to set up and take down.
Our Toggle Ropes are made with braided 550 Cord that provides a breaking strength exceeding 1000 pounds.
Our simple to use Toggle Rope has a loop at one end with a toggle at the other. To sling a hammock, make the TSIB hitch around a tree (or branch as pictured above). Pass the toggle end through the eye, then pass the toggle through the eye of the hammock and back through the eye of the rope. Simple, incredibly strong, and reliable
The other end of the hammock was secured by placing the toggle rope around a rock outcropping as shown above. The toggle was then passed through the eye of the Toggle Rope, lead through the hammock eye and then secured back into the eye of the rope.
The photo above illustrates an alternate method of securing a hammock to a tree. Note the TSIB Hitch was not used. To secure a hammock in this fashion, wrap the rope around the tree or any stable object and pass the toggle back through the eye. Cinch it up tightly. Then pass the toggle through the eye of the hammock and re-insert the toggle back through the rope at any point along its length once the appropriate amount of slack has been removed.
ALWAYS pass the toggle through the middle of the rope, separating the rope with two strands on either side of the toggle. Failure to do so may cause the rope to draw up as seen in the illustration below.
