|Using ROPE can be hazardous.
To reduce the danger of the rope getting caught by a moving object (car, equipment or other vehicle) and pulling the
rope with it, it is recommended that the rope length be limited to,
½ the distance around the area to be protected and a maximum length of 8’.
That is to say, if you have a 5' square,
you would use two lengths of rope shortened using the
and then securing them together using the
Never use one continuous rope that surrounds more than

Rope Too Long
With ConeTopper’s unique qualities a rope can be shortened without Cutting the Rope. This can be accomplished
vary conveniently. To shorten a rope and secure it to the cone, simply remove one leg of the ConeTopper from the
cone at either end, then wrap the rope around the leg, then reinsert ConeTopper back into
the cone. Now tuck excessive rope under the cone. DONE.

Rope Too Short?
With ConeTopper’s unique qualities this can be accomplished vary conveniently. To connect two ropes, simply
remove one leg of the ConeTopper at the end of the rope, then place the rope that needs connecting under the
ConeTopper (be sure to have a ConeTopper tied to the end of the connecting rope), then reinsert ConeTopper back
into the cone. The two ropes are now joined at the cone. DONE

How to make a ConeTopper Rope
Start by measuring out 25’ of rope and mark by wrapping tape at this point and cut at mid point of tape (I like to melt
the end of the rope to keep it form fraying). Now thread two ConeToppers (through the center knock out of the
ConeTopper ) onto the rope. Now tie large knots at both ends of the rope. If you like at this point tie ribbon to the
rope every 1.5 feet. Your rope is ready to use.
