This is a quick-fix solution for making cords (small ropes) the right length. The threading diagrams are on the tool, so it's tough to go wrong. It is not an "every day" tool, but when it's needed, it's the go-to item. If it is used repeatedly at the same location on the rope, it can fray the surface of the rope, but caution can be used to minimize that.
