Team-Ropers: A New Tool That Can Save Your Butt (or at least a thumb or two)!

Horse Tack - New Products

The Thumb-Saver™ is an innovative and much needed revolutionary new product that has just been introduced into the team roping industry. Designed to fit under a cotton roping glove, Thumb-Saver™, helps prevent serious injuries to the thumbs when caught in the dally.

The Thumb-Saver™ is a device that the team roping industry has never before seen. It was inspired by John Keene, president of Five J Products, LLC, after loosing his own thumb in a team roping accident years earlier. John explained, “Not only have I experienced the trauma of loosing a thumb, but over the years, it is a story that I have heard repeated so many times and in all probability can be prevented. Finally, good news for ropers who have lost a thumb, Thumb-Saver acts as an extension and helps compensate for the loss. There has been a real void in the development of safety products in this area.”

The roping industry has responded to the advanced news of this product with great enthusiasm. “If you’re concerned about seriously injuring your thumb, you now have a new tool to help protect you. It’s a great safety device,” said Speed Williams, 8x World Champion.

The Thumb-Saver™ will be available through Equibrand, National Roper Supply, Smith Brothers and within the next few weeks. The Thumb-Saver™ retails at just $24.95, less than the price of a rope. It will also be available at the USTRC Finals, October 22-29, 2006 through National Ropers Supply and Classic Ropes. Five J Products, LLC welcomes all Dealer inquires.
