The Rope King SBN-516600 solid braided nylon rope is a nylon rope that is solid braided, measures 5/16" in diameter by 500' long with an SWL limit of 192 lb., and is suitable for use in a wide variety of applications, including recreation, home, boating, pulleys, and automotive. Nylon rope resists abrasion and stretches to absorb shock from vibrations. The solid braided construction helps the rope hold its round shape under pressure and load, making it useful in pulleys and winches. It cannot be unraveled, even when cut. This rope has an SWL (safe working load) limit of 192 lb. and is white in color.

Fibrous ropes used for pulling and lifting are made of natural and/or synthetic fiber strands. A combination of characteristics, including material, construction, diameter, length, and breaking strength, give each rope its performance capability. Fibrous rope materials are selected for properties such as strength, flotation, elasticity, and resistance to abrasion, ultraviolet light, and chemical compounds. In solid braided rope, strands alternate between forming the outside of the rope and the interior of the rope. Solid braided rope tends to hold its round shape under pressure and load, making it useful in pulleys and winches. This type of rope is sturdy but not suitable for splicing. The breaking strength for fibrous rope is the strength at which new rope will fail under a stationary load. Breaking strength is not considered safe working load (SWL) limit.
