LoopRope LLC Announces Test Market Launch of BuoyRope® for Select Costco Stores

MEDFORD, Ore., May 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- LoopRope LLC announced today that it has launched its BuoyRope® with Costco Wholesale Corporation, a major on-line wholesaler that offers a selection of branded and private label products in a range of merchandise categories in no-frills, self-service warehouse facilities. Costco warehouse shopping members can now find the world's first 2 in 1 quick docking line in 16 select stores in Oregon, Idaho, California, Georgia, North Carolina, New York, Virginia, Michigan, Texas and Colorado.


It's one of the hardest aspects of boating for the new or inexperienced boat owner. Even an experienced boat owner can get frustrated with having to dock for short visits. You see your slip or dock, and now you have to seamlessly maneuver your way into it. Docking your boat is something that can be turned into a stressful situation if you are not careful. It is often compared to parallel parking a car. The first few times you do it, it may take a few minutes of trial and error until you get it right. Introducing BuoyRope! It's the only quick docking line that enables you to set your boat fender at the perfect height and secure it to the dock at the same time. It just doesn't get any easier than this. It's perfect for sport boats and personal watercraft such as jet skis. For larger boats it's great to use as a fully adjustable fender holder up to 5 feet. When you are not using the Buoy Rope® as a revolutionary docking, simply remove the fender and use it as a "tie down" to secure inflatables, coolers, fishing poles, life jackets or other important boating gear. Makes for a great clothesline as well. The BuoyRope comes in pacific blue with white banding and is 5 feet in length. Each BuoyRope comes equipped with one stainless steel double LoopClip®.

The featured Blue BuoyRope® is located in the "Boating Gear/Inflatables" section of the following stores:

"There are 82 million adult Americans involved in boating," said Jeff Dahl, founder and creator of the original LoopRope tie-down product line. "This is a $30 billion per year market according to the National Marine Manufacturers. We are energized to be testing that market, on a limited basis, with a retail partner like Costco," he said.

About LoopRope

Founded in 2009 by Jeff Dahl in Medford, Oregon, parent company LoopRope LLC was conceived out of frustration and need. A regular guy with guy-gear who makes the occasional dump run, Dahl is not inclined to tie knots, and bungee cords are simply too messy, unreliable and dangerous to use. After much research and multiple prototypes, Dahl invented the LoopRope; made of one continuous piece of shock cord fastened together to create permanent loops. Now patented, LoopRope comes in a variety of lengths, names and niche-market configurations. Each BuoyRope or LoopRope comes with two dual-sided, stainless steel carabiners. One 5-foot tie-down gives you 10 custom tie-down lengths and over 18 attachment points. Video demos are available on the website. The company can be reached via USPS at 588 Parsons Street, #E, Medford, OR 97501; via phone at (541) 770-5667, or via email at
