This is so simple I can't imagine why most folks don't do it. For those of you who raft up, either using the higher lifeline or simply flipping the fenders over the top line moves them up higher for rafting. Simple, no knots required.

There are many things similar to these.

BTW, I know knots, but choose not to use them for this purpose.
