AbstractThe present invention is directed to a mooring device for more quickly, safely and securely mooring a boat to a stationary object. The device includes first and second opposed, inwardly curving arms forming a jaw portion and a handle portion extending from each of the arms. The arms are coupled by a fastener located adjacent the handle portions. A resilient member couples the arms intermediate the fastener and the other end of the jaw portion to hold the jaw portion in a normally closed position while yielding to allow the jaw portion to open when the handle portions are drawn together. A tie-line extends from the first arm, to the second arm, through the first handle portion and to the boat to be secured.
