Gear up

The Fourteener Knotting Tool
Clove hitch, marlinespike, cat’s paw, bowline. If you get tangled just thinking about these knots, the Fourteener could straighten things out. The hook-shape plastic gadget mimics everything in the outdoors you might have to tie a rope to, whether a tent stake or a fellow climber, so you can practice knots before you really need them. A companion booklet gives clear, step-by-step instructions for 17 handy knots.
Price: $14.99
Where to get it: 14erknotting
Bonus: It comes with rope and a storage sack.
Bummer: It’s hard to secure so you can use both hands to tie.
