They have reinvented the strope! Wow.
I think the invention is about 200 years old, perhaps more. These were common on dingies, back in the day. Using high teck line is a valuable upgrade. For lesser applications these can be tied from any flexible line.
I have always used stropes to hold certain covers on the boat, because they are faster than knots and will not scratch the sides like shackles or other metal connectors.
