          Comments about Standard Safety Tether:

          We did a night crossing of the Gulf Stream heading towards the Bimini's. Our class required use of tethers. I found your tether never bound on the jack lines, was easy to place around stainless bars and your quick release beaded handle was easy to find without having to look down.

                            I'm a 300 pound gorilla. If I go overboard I need a tether the won't let me down to drown. I looked at the contracting/expanding tethers, but for a lesser price I got one that did not pull on my EFD, but rather fell slack so I don't even know it's there. But, I know it will be when it's needed. This beast could lift my yacht if it had to. Thanks, West Marine, for a great product at a great price.

                                The carabiner should be covered to reduce noise when moving along the deck.

                                  A previous reviewer complained about the cost of nylon webbing. Obviously they know nothing about the safety issues that result in the cost of safety tethers. If he wants to construct a cheap tether I hope he knows how to swim. You get what you pay for. And when it comes to safety, this tether is reasonably priced.

                                        There is no reason a nylon strap should cost [$]. More marine BS.
