LoopAlien UFA - Ultra Fast Attachment! in Titanium!

AND 

NEW Large ALUMINUM ORIGINAL LoopAlien rewards just added!

The LoopAlien UFA is the latest itteration LoopAlien - Rapid Cord Attachment that successfully launched on KickStarter earlier this year.  The NEW LoopAlien UFA is faster, lighter and (if you choose) larger than the original LoopAlien. 

Whether you need to secure cargo, setup camp, attach gear to your pack or simply hang and organize items in the garage, the LoopAlien UFA is up to the challenge!

*** LOOK --> Be sure to check out the LIMITED "Lightspeed" rewards for a truly unique holiday gift opportunity! Those rewards are VERY limited so act fast!  They'll ship out within 5 business days of the close of the project if successfully funded and funds have transferred!

This NEW design is easier and faster to use. It's great for tents, tarps, canopies, cargo, backpacks, strollers, camera bags, bug out bags and much, much more!

Hang up items at camp, at a picnic, fishing, hunting, the beach, tailgating, you name it.

Backers from the original LoopAlien have used them for, bracing fruit trees, hanging lights and even securing amateur radio antennas.  The uses are limitless and the NEW LoopAlien UFA design makes it even better.

The LoopAlien UFA (small and large) is manufactured from Grade 5 titanium (6AL-4V).  

The ORIGINAL design LoopAlien in the large size is made from 3/16 6061-T6 aluminum.

Specifications:

  • The small LoopAlien UFA is ~ 1.3in x 0.84in x 0.09 (33mm x 21.3mm x 2.3mm) in size and weighs ~ 3 grams. A great combination of low weight and high strength. Perfect for tents, tarps, netting, blinds and more.
  • The NEW large LoopAlien UFA is ~ 1.93in x 1.26in x 0.1875 (49mm x 32mm x 5.2mm) in size and weighs ~ 16 grams.  This thing is BEEFY....  It's 1.5 times larger in length and width and twice as thick as the small version. Did I mention it was Titanium? It's para cord friendly too!
  • The ORIGINAL LoopAlien in the large size is ~ 1.95in x 1.27in x 0.1875 (49.7mm x 32.3mm x 5.2mm) in size and weighs ~ 9.25 grams.  This is 1.5 times larger than the small version and it's also para cord friendly!

The cord and rope included in some of the rewards works great with the NEW LoopAlien UFA.  The small version can be used with para cord but it's much easier with the larger LoopAlien UFA.  The cord and rope is high quality Dyneema (1.75mm) and Amsteel 7/64 (2.5mm).

The NEW design make it easier to use in bad weather and when the cord or rope is already under tension.  No need to make a loop, just wrap the cord as shown above or below.

In the picture below you can see that both sizes work with either cord/rope size.

The NEW LoopAlien UFA design also allows it to be used as a hook, zipper pull, key chain and more.  I've even used one to hang a florescent light fixture in my garage.

 

*** Please note, any time a bend or knot is introduced to ANY cord or rope, some of it's strength is defeated.

** NOTICE **

*** The LoopAlien(TM) and LoopAlien UFA are not designed to support human weight. They must not be used as life saving devices, fall protection or in any manner where failure could cause property damage, injury or loss of life. ***

Proudly designed and manufactured in the USA.

Risks and challenges

This will be my second KickSarter project this year. The first was a great learning experience and the rewards were shipped ON TIME. I've already lined up material, waterjet services, supplies, shipping material, shipping company and everything else required to help ensure a successful project. Possible challenges include being a part of another companies production schedule. If they have a problem, I have a problem. I have multiple sources to help minimize this risk.
