LoopAlien - Quick Update


Hi Everyone! It’s been a while since and update. I just wanted to pass on some new information. 

First off, the LoopAlien is still going strong thanks to you. We now have a US manufacturer that produces a great aluminum LoopAlien! There is a project in the works, so be on the lookout for that :) As you may know, I started branding the LoopAlien because of overseas fake product. In hind sight, branding should have been done from the start but we live and learn.  If the aluminum doesn't have the following on it... it isn't a real LoopAlien

The website and store has new information, pictures and product offerings! As outdoor season starts up, be sure to visit the store for some gear. An NEW aluminum starter pack that includes 4 aluminum LoopAliens and 20 feet of Dyneema cord has been added. It’s at a discounted price over the individual items. The store now has 7/64 Amsteel rope back in stock. There are also a limited number of large titanium LoopAlien UFAs in the store. When those are gone… they’re gone. Visit the store at

I recently backed a great KickStarter project that I wanted to share with you. It’s called the Para TPS (Titanium Pulley System) by Root Designs. As the name says, it’s a systems of different style pulleys that can be used for all types of needs. The different configurations allow you to get some serious mechanical advantage (like picking up a riding mower!). You can also make a dog runner, keep you food away from bears, tension that hammock... you name it. Stop by and check it out.

LoopAlien counterfeits


Hi everyone,

I wanted to send out a very quick note and make everyone aware of some counterfeit product that is making its way around.  I have seen 2 different sellers on eBay that have listings for LoopAlien type product.

The only way to get official LoopAlien product is via the website  The LoopAlien products aren't currently in retail (yet) and are only sold on the Canny Designs site.

It's sad that I have to send updates like this but I'm afraid it is what it is.

Thanks again for all your support and loyalty!

Best regards,
