    not sure of the exact name, but they are used to help tension lines you use to secure your tent to the stakes. the line goes from the tent, in one hole in the block, out the other hole, and knotted. the loop goes around your tent stake, and the slack is taken up. it stays in place through friction.

    Boy Chuck thats a pretty fancy rope tensioner. All neatly trimmed and finished. You aint gonna make money that way. What happened to plain ole drill two holes and there you have it? Now its fancy red oak and precision drilling with routered edges and varnish. Wow but i like your standards Chuck.
    cheers
