Hand-sewn Leather Grip
Low-Rider Monkey's Fist
The Low Rider is a genuine Monkey's Fist knot with an eye-spliced end, plus a hand sewn leather grip... which is then whipped and finished with 2 Turk's Head knots. It's built from the same vintage New England rope that our bag lanyards are made from, and the standard version (as pictured) measures approximately 15-inches end to end, with a grip length of about 12-inches.
What's it for?
In the old days, the Low Rider would have been useful in hand-to-hand combat aboard the ship, as well as providing concealment for small valuables buried inside the Monkey's Fist.
Today it serves as a (purely optional) decorative, removable extension for the rope lanyards on our Rum Runner and Windjammer Elite bags, further enhancing the level of interest and hand-worked detail. Of course it also makes a fine stand-alone accessory for the nautical home or office, and on the practical side it can also be used to make an emergency heaving line when attached to an additional length of light line.
To install the Low Rider on either a Rum Runner or a Windjammer Elite bag, simply pass the (skinny) spliced end up through the bottom loop of the bag, until the Monkey's Fist acts as a stopper, and then clip the snapshackle to the spliced eye in the usual way. To take it off, just reverse the procedure. (photos coming soon)
NOTE: We would like to clarify that the lanyard lengths on both the Rum Runner Seabag and the Windjammer Elite are already adjustable by design. That's why the use of a Low Rider is purely optional.
