Oddity Mall reports that the materials used in the glow in the dark tent rope are made of strong stuff and by that, we mean polypropylene construction. It is diamond braided for extra strength and has a safe working load of 80 lbs. It's great for overnight camping as it charges during sunlight and stays glowing all night long. Another great benefit is that it is resistant to rot, mildew, and corrosion from chemicals. Single ropes can be bought here. According to its description, these ropes can glow for up to 6-8 hours in the darkness after 10-15 minutes of light or sunshine exposure in the daytime. If you want a brighter glow, make sure to let this cord charge in direct sunlight. Happy camping!
