Tug Line Toggle (Eskimo Hook) (CL021)

A high-tech version of the traditional approach of hooking tug lines to harnesses, Toggles (sometimes called "Eskimo Hooks") provide and alternative to bronze and brass snaps. Based on traditional Inuit design, the Toggles are made from high quality, UV stabilized, Marine-Grade black HDPE, weather-resistant plastic.

Requires a modified Tugline configuration consisting of two pieces/lines (CL022 Toggle Tug & Harness Line Combo).

How are Toggles used?
As compared to our standard tugline with a bronze snap, the Tug Line Toggle is best used with a shorter tug line fidded on to the Toggle, which then connects to, via the Toggle, a 18" Harness Tug Extender Line, which has a 4" loop on one end to loop into the harness tug loop, and 1.5" loop on the other end to loop around the Toggle, with the Toggle connecting the Harness Extender Line and the Tug Line.

The following video link featuring Iditarod Veteran Karen Ramstead, who has successfully used this style of Toggle for years, shows how the Toggle is used. v=8jQqI6PrTmI

We'll be happy to fid the Toggles for you on our standard 30" shortened Toggle Tug, or at any custom length you prefer, and in our wide selection of rope color choices; we also have our standard 18" Harness Tug Extender Line available. Just select "Yes, add Toggle Tug & Harness Line Assembly" in the dropdown below.

For a perfect Toggle Tug Line length, we recommend measuring the distance between the inside of each end loop on your centerline. With that measurement, we can determine the proper Toggle Tug length to work with the 18" Harness Tug Extender Line. For example, if the standard tugline you normally use is 48", then the Toggle Tugline will be 30"; this plus the 18" Harness Line equals 48" total tugline length. Please note the measurement in the Comments box below.

Each Toggle is hand-made, and is approximately 4" wide. Designed for use with 8mm polyethylene tight-weave rope.
