Just wanting to know please is this clip suitable for 6mm rope as thats what dia I need for?
Hello... It tappers down to 7mm... The anchor ropes that I had attached it to averaged 12 mm ( the 2nd step up) The item works GREAT... It makes safety stops in strong currents nearly effortless in keeping at a constant depth. I attached a 18 inch cable to the other end and its clipped to my BC... I could Tow a diver or an item with it as well... You might get it to stick to 6 mm rope, but it its your equipment, you can tie two or more knots in a series close to each other and clip in the middle of them.. Good Luck
6 mm is about 3/16" and both are a slight bit narrower than the narrowest part of the clip's throat, so I would not trust it on a rope of that size if you want it to hold snugly. You could beat it with a hammer to narrow down the throat, but it is a sturdy metal and you would probably be better off with a different clip. I've been very happy, however, with its performance on larger diameter ropes.
