Atwood Rope MFG Tactical Rope Dispenser (TRD)

Being prepared means being equipped with the right gear in the worst scenario.

The Tactical Rope Dispenser (TRD) is an innovative product that better equips outdoorsmen in the field and on the water. Designed, engineered, and made in the USA by Atwood Rope Manufacturing, the TRD provides a solution to get tangle-free paracord at the right length, exactly when needed. Whether hunting, fishing, or in the backwoods, its design and functionality saves time and reduces wasted cord.


The TRD comes preloaded with 50 feet of 550lb paracord, and is designed to be quickly and easily reloaded. No additional tools are needed to unspool, cut, and store cord because it has a cutting blade and cord grip built-in. These features allow for quick and quiet operation which is perfect for outdoor use. It can be used with one hand, making operation easy and safe when in the boat, stand, or fishing in chest deep water. The cutting blade is made of high carbon to effortlessly cut cord time and time again. Minimizing the amount of gear in the field is critical, and the TRD helps by being a complete package.

Atwood Rope MFG demonstrates their attention to detail by designing the TRD with several small, but important features. A rugged belt clip secures the TRD to belts, packs, and harnesses. A two-inch integrated rule and top rail attachment for adding a tether or lanyard for additional attachment options. A view port window allows quick gauge of remaining cord. The TRD is small and lightweight at 4” x 4” x 2.5”, but built to be impact and element resistant. It comes in a variety of color options including black, clear, pink tree camo, and even glow-in-the-dark.

At less than $20, having a TRD in the outdoors is a no-brainer. The TRD makes having paracord easily and readily available. Paracord is one of the best items to have on hand due to its construction and it essentially eight lines in one. It has 550 lbs of minimum breaking strength, and the inner cores can be separated for a variety of additional uses. Get yours here.
