The Super Rope Cinch knot-tying device has caused quite a stir in the Boy Scouts of America lately. Many older scouts and troop leaders see the knot-tying device as a threat to the long-time tradition of learning to tie knots. The Scouts currently sell the Super Rope Cinch as a fundraising tool in addition to selling popcorn.

According to Tim Bourke, Vice President of Just Right Products LLC, "Unfortunately, there has been much confusion as to what the Super Rope Cinch is to be used for within the Boy Scouts of America. It was never meant to replace the need for Scouts to learn their knots. It is meant to be used only as a fundraising tool. The Super Rope Cinch offers a low-cost, high-volume solution to Scouts wanting to raise money for camp. With a low, $5 retail price, it also presents a great value to consumers. After all, who better than the Scouts to offer a knot-tying solution to the public? Scouts are synonymous with tying knots."

The controversy started in May of 2012 when the Boy Scouts of America were first introduced to the Super Rope Cinch device at the BSA National Meeting in Orlando. The product was the talk of the show according to many who attended. Yet, initially, some older scouts saw the Super Rope Cinch as a threat to younger scouts, thinking it may bypass their need to learn knots. Ruffled Scouts were later put at ease when they understood the device is to be used only as a fundraising tool in leu of popcorn sales.

As a whole, the Scouts love the Super Rope Cinch due to its gadget-like usage and its low $5 retail selling price. And, because the motto for the Boy Scouts of America has always been, "Always Be Prepared", the Super Rope Cinch better prepares the public for dealing with ropes, and better prepares the Scouts financially by offering a great fundraising tool at a low, $5 retail price. Plus, it can be sold anywhere since it won't ever perish.
