Tight Lanes

Competitor Swim Products is now distributing the Titeline swimming lane tightener for creating optimal training and competition environments. Easy to install and operate, simply twist or untwist the Titeline adjuster in order to adjust the racing lane tension. Because Titeline does not twist the cable each time tension is adjusted, there is no wear and tear on the swimming lane cable. Titeline applies the proper amount of tension to the swimming lane without sacrificing the integrity of the lane. Constructed of durable, non-corrosive materials, the Titeline will not rust or crack. Available in four colors—blue, red, yellow and green—Titeline is resistive to sun and chlorine.
