Runlock Saves Company Money

No Boy Scouts on my Crews
I do a lot of heavy field stone rock work on lake shorelines. We use rock chutes in eight foot sections and connect them together. Before Runlock ropes my crew had to tie all the chutes together with regular rope.
None were ever boy scouts and their knowledge of tie a rope knot was zero. I always got frustrated watching them trying to tie knots. Some would take more time to tie a knot than it took the manufacture to make the rope. If finally successful to get the knot to hold, 90% of the time the rope had to be cut to undo the rope from the rock chutes.
The cost of labor saved in tying and untying knots, knots actually holding and safety really was a substantial savings to my company.
