Our traditional, grade school level, Tug of War ropes are fabricated using 1” diameter quality 3-strand twisted manila, polypropylene or poly Dacron rope. Each rope has a firmly woven 5 foot circumference “anchor man end loops.” These ropes come in sizes of 25ft, 50ft, 75ft and 100 ft lengths and are recommended for grade school level competition.

  • Natural Manila: The finest pure grade A manila exceeds government specs for quality and surface smoothness.
  • Poly Dacron: Softer feel and superior strength. Stands up best against UV, moisture and abrasion. Available in white, black or tan.
  • Polypropylene: Light weight and not affected by moisture. Tan color to simulate the look of natural manila.

  • Never let participants let go of rope allowing other side to over compensate and spring backwards.
  • Stop competition as soon as last player passes win line on losing team.
  • Allow approximately 5 ft of rope for “puller” to avoid bunching up (purchase rope length accordingly).
  • Never let anyone pull unless both teams are “ready”.
  • For tug of war ropes with hand loops- never pass arms into “hand” loops. Grab loop with hands only.
  • Never let participants wrap rope around and body part to help with grip.
  • Do not exceed ½ tensile strength of rope in good condition.
  • Avoid getting manila rope wet. It is susceptible to dry rot which will cause rope to weaken and break. It also loses 1/3 of rope’s strength when used wet. Keep in dry and cool storage. Dry out completely before storing. Any degradation and/or cut strands replace immediately. Rope are relatively inexpensive and can be replaced easily.
  • Supervision is needed to ensure a safe completion and play area. Use common sense and limits.
  • Inspect rope before and after each use.
  • Not to be used other than intended.

USE AND HANDLING:  Provide safe play area at and around competition area. Includes soft non-abrasive surfaces free from dangerous debris or obstacle. Do not pull over dangerous terrain, etc. Be sure there is ample space behind each team side to accommodate 1/2 the rope length plus plenty of space for a potential backward thrust. If in a gym or indoors provide wall mats in back of teams.

MAINTENANCE NOTE:  To avoid rope strands being pulled out of the rope at splice areas we strongly suggest covering and reinforcing this area with a heavy duty tape. If strands do come out, simply twist strand together and reinsert the strand into the rope by following the weave as noted in other splices. Do NOT exceed ½ tensile strength of rope in good condition. Avoid getting manila rope wet and inspect for mildew and/or dry rot, if used outdoors, before each use. Discard if detected.
