Introducing the new PUCA (Pull-Up Cord Assistance) Tool!
Using pull-up cords can be exhaustive and uncomfortable, especially when trying to close a tight rig or when packing multiple rigs per hour.
The PUCA Tool was designed to function primarily as an ergonomic handle for pull-up cords and make using them far more rewarding! It grips the cord for you while you pull, eliminating most of the compression and abrasion your hand normally experiences from the tough nylon fabric. This not only eliminates most of the discomfort associated with using pull cords, but also allows for a more powerful pull, and helps reduce the amount of continual wear your hands are subjected to when packing throughout the course of a day.
The tool works by simply constricting your cord into a progressively narrower area and freeing it once tension is released. Compared to other tools, its larger size engages more surface area of the hand and distributes forces that would normally concentrate to cause discomfort and soreness. Its smooth, curvilinear shape has also been tailored to nest in the empty space of a relaxed fist giving it a natural and consistent feel.
When you’re done using it, it’s smooth and small enough to fit nicely into a jumpsuit pocket with little or no disturbance to your ribcage.
What makes the tool even better is that it’s technically also a multi-tool. It features a bottle opener for quick access to beverages at the end of the day and can be used in any situation where the pulling of a thin, soft, flexible material is required making it a strong candidate for rigging applications as well.
It can also be more economical than other alternatives since there’s little to no need for the replacement parts. The tool has been designed to last for decades. Made of marine-grade 316 Stainless Steel and Glass-Reinforced Polypropylene, the tool will not only resist water and chemicals but years of abuse and accidental drops as well.
The PUCA Tool is available in two versions, which are the same with the exception of the accessory loop at the end:
- The Original features a smooth continuous D-shaped loop for attaching various lanyards.
- The Band Cutter features a tiny hook knife in addition to the accessory loop for cutting broken, stubborn stow bands.
With each purchase, you will get:
- 1 x PUCA Tool (either Original or Band Cutter)
- 1 x Complete User’s Manual
- 1 x Pull-Up Cord
Save your strength for where it really matters; try packing with a PUCA Tool.
Made In Illinois, USA.

My hands are thanking whoever created thisI have to say, I wasn't sure if this was going to make a difference. It looked good on paper but after looking at the kickstarter and some of the less-than-stellar feedback by a two of the users there, I wasn't so convinced.
I'm glad to report that it seems that this was a definite case of "unhappy customers post, happy customers don't".
I am packing a canopy is at the upper end of the range for my container and my hands ordinarily kill after a day of jumping (sometimes even to the point of slight blood). This tool absolutely changed it for me by (a) relieving the pressure massively on my hands; and (b) creating so much more leverage in pulling the closing loop through each grommet wihout a struggle - the whole process became an absolute breeze. Honestly this thing was been a godsend for me - recommend to anyone packing a tight fit or who otherwise struggles getting the necessary leverage.
I got the version with the little rubber band hook knife. Used it once on a band, requires more force than I expected but not excessive by any means - definitely works and does make removing the band easier.
Haven't used the bottle opener yet but does anyone really care about that?
