Custom Splice was started in Stillwater, Oklahoma in September of 2005 by Todd Stauffer. Todd had the idea to start his own tow rope manufacturing company after some not-so-pleasant experiences with steel cable, and the issues of dealing with standard-length ropes. The business started with 2 diameters of AmSteel synthetic rope and a tape measure. Soon after the business started, Todd progressed into various rope diameters, honing in on specialty lengths and developing rapport with customers around the world. Now located in Lawrence, Kansas, Custom Splice has 10 diameters of rope – often available in many different colors – with options of hooks, fairleads, specialty thimbles and chaff guards. In addition to online sales, Custom Splice attends several events throughout the year to sell product and to feature the Rhino Wrecker recovery vehicle.
