Help - what type of safety rope hook for this anchor (pic)

new_2_njJuly 24, 2012

Hi all,

we need to get a safety rope for our pool. I ordered one online, but the hook that came attached doesn't work with our anchor. Anyone have any ideas what I need to get? I don't even know how to explain this anchor b/c it doesn't seem to have anything for a hook to grab.

I think your best bet is just to tie a sliding knot, like a clinch knot (google), at each end and tighten it down snug. I don't think you're going to find a true slip of any type that will work.

The way it is tapered and bigger at the top should allow for any knot that is tightened up to the smaller narrower section not to come off easily.
