is it ok in your state if its not concealed? Here in NH just about anything goes for lawful purposes, as it should be.

A Design Option

1. Snap one end onto a large billfold full of phony money.
2. Braid the steel ball into the monkey fist.
3. Connect with at least 10' of elastic shock cord.
4. Retreve assembly from thief smacked by monkey fist.

First thing I thought of when I saw these... bolas.

You could also use the same for launching your rope over a limb when hanging a bear bag. Real cool.

That's actually what they were originally used for. Sailors, in the day of wind propelled sailing ships, would use them to throw over lead lines. They would tie the lead line in a monkeyfists knot over ballast or lead shot and sling it to shore or a waiting boat. The sailors on the receiving end would use the lead line to pull over the heavier rope. Quiet literally "slung shot".

The sailors would also attach short loops to the knotted weight and use them in brawls. This subsequently lead to their outlaw.
