A monkey's fist is a type of knot, so named because it looks somewhat like a small bunched fist. The monkey's fist knot is most often used as the weight in a heaving line on ships. Our version is used on all our Red Oxx zippers. The sleek little Zip Knot makes it easier to grab your zipper pull, even with bulky gloves on. Use them on you favorite coat or ski jacket or as a key chain!
Each Monkey Fist Zip Knot is hand tied from U.S.A. sourced paracord by our craftsman in the highlands of Guatemala. The work is carried out in the spirit of Fair Trade. Each year I visit the village and check on our workers. The impact of this business has been tremendous for the village. By purchasing Monkey Fist Zip Knots you're keeping families together and helping maintain the proud craftspeople of Guatemala.
