Super Rope Cinch Fundraiser for Boy Scouts of America Causes Controversy Among Older Scouts

Who better than the Boy Scouts of America to offer a knot-tying solution to the public?

Brentwood, TN (PRWEB) October 09, 2012

In September 2012, the Super Rope Cinch knot-tying device caused quite a stir in the Boy Scouts of America. Some older scouts and troop leaders viewed the rope-securing device as a threat to the long-time scouting tradition of learning to tie knots. The Boy Scouts of America currently sell the Super Rope Cinch as a fundraising tool in addition to selling popcorn.

According to Tim Bourke, President of Just Right Products LLC, "Unfortunately, there has been a lot of confusion in the Boy Scouts of America as to what the Super Rope Cinch is to be used for. Our product was never meant to replace the need for Scouts to learn their knots. Rather, it is meant to be used only as a fundraising tool, allowing the general public a means to secure items with rope. Many of which, do not know how to tie knots. The Super Rope Cinch offers a low-cost, high-volume solution to Scouts wanting to raise money for camp. With $5 retail price, it also presents a great value to the people who buy product from the Scouts. And, since Scouts are synonymous with tying knots, who better to offer a knotting solution to the public?"

The controversy began 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 USA-made Super Rope Cinch as a threat to younger scouts, thinking it may bypass their need to learn knots, a long-time tradition of the organization. Concerned Scoutmasters and troop leaders were later put at ease when it was understood that the device is to be used as a fundraising tool, in lieu of popcorn sales.

As a whole, the Boy Scouts of America have taken a liking to the Super Rope Cinch due to its gadget-like appearance and low $5 retail selling price. And, because the motto for the Boy Scouts of America is, "Always Be Prepared", the Super Rope Cinch better prepares the public when dealing with ropes.

The Super Rope Cinch made in the USA by Just Right Products LLC, and is currently on sale through many Boy Scout troops and packs nationwide. The product will never parish, and is typically sold for $5 each.
