Then you need to find a pattern, sew it up before you can connect the rope to a hook that would hang over a stanchion ring. Your main problem in trying to make your own rope dividers is finding a supplier willing to sell you the inner chain used for rope dividers and hooks. Usually, suppliers will only accept wholesale orders.

There are other ways you can cut corners such as in your office supplies and use of paper, negotiating with suppliers, and streamlining your operations. Rope dividers are icing on your business image. It doesn’t pay to scrimp over these types of frontline equipment.
