It looks like it only clips on with enough force to hold itself on the cable. I don’t think it is strong enough to create any issues as far as live and dead end connection goes. Like you said in a snag I’m sure it would slide up or pop off. I just ordered one myself so I guess we can report back here when they come in!I use an oxy torch to melt the ends...i still am going to buy a ropinator...ive tried everything i could think of over the years to try and keep the dead end nice, straight, and out of the way with no lasting results. I do wonder if the designer received the green light to attach the dead end to the live end from equipment manufacturers. Its always been a no no, but appears the ropinator would "float" upwards if it somehow got snagged.
Me too. The keychain and stickers were definitely a nice touch. I did feel like it’s a little cheap feeling for 65 dollars. But it looks 3D printed maybe so I’m sure there’s a good bit of time involved in making it.Got mine today, with a cool key chain amd some stickers...almost like the old treestuff...planning on mounting it tomorrow
