These Tent Ropes Glow in the Dark and Prevent Tripping Over Them at Night

Everyone who has ever camped outside in tents has likely run into the issue of tent ropes that seem to be attracted to any passerby’s legs like a magnet. You might end up wrecking your legs or the tent on impact and sometimes those snakey ropes manage to trip you over to get a fresh taste of the soil. And if these scenarios invoke a familiar feeling in your mind, then this handy gadget might be just the thing for you.

This glow in the dark rope might not solve other camping issues like being eaten alive by mosquitos, it could definitely help with providing some visibility and warning when out and about at night. And, it looks really, really cool!

Amazon describes this rope as a solid one and advertises its best qualities such as reflective surface, sturdy polypropylene construction, and 50ft x 3/16 inch measurements. “Perfect for holding items, guying out tents, tarps, and shelters when traveling, camping or biking.” Oh, and you can charge it in the sunlight to make it extra glowing during the night.

Also, the rope is versatile and can be used for more than just tents. “Designed for outdoor recreation, this line is great for emergency applications, hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing, hunting and traveling”. The material that the rope is made out of, polypropylene, is also the lightest all-purpose rope material and because of that, it floats. It holds a 4.2 out of 5 rating on Amazon with 16 reviews from customers. The majority praised the glowing cord for providing visibility at night, making the camping experience fun and being strong. Negative reviews criticized it for not always glowing and not being sturdy enough for long-time use, although another reviewer stated they used the rope for about 3 years of camping.
