Product of the Week- The Landing Loop

by Sail-World Cruising on 13 Mar 2011
Landing Loop in action .. .
If the crew on your boat - be it one or 20 - can leap over the guard rail onto the dock with effortless ease and rapidly bring the boat to a stop with a quick line around a cleat, you probably will never need a Landing Loop. But if you want to lower the adrenaline flow and have your crew remain safe on deck while docking, then this Product of the Week might just be for you.

Everyone wants to take advantage of products, particularly new innovative ones, which make sailing safer and easier. According to some reports, the Landing Loop is rapidly building a reputation among boaters who say, 'I don’t know how I lived without it.'

This extendable, lightweight docking device lets boaters tie up safely and effortlessly. No more leaning over the boat; no more dockside injuries. (One boater even claims the Landing Loop saved his marriage by eliminating the tension associated with docking their boat!)

How to use it:
To use the Landing Loop, you simply make a slip knot at the end of their docking line. Then extend the pole as needed, place the frame over the cleat, piling or post and pull the line tight.

About Landing Loop:
Landing Loop was founded with a mission of providing quality, innovative products that improve the leisure lives of boaters everywhere. The Landing Loop’s namesake product is leading the way in boat dock safety by making it easy to tie up to the dock without leaning over the water. The product was invented by Allen Greenberg, a 70-year-old retired businessman with a passion for boating, after watching too many people struggle to dock their boats. His partner is Roger Leyden, a 78-year-old inventor and manufacturer with numerous patents to his name. Which just goes to show that all new fresh ideas do not come from the young.

Landing Loop is available online, so for more information, visit http://www.landingloop.com
