My folks have a cabin in the woods, complete with outhouse...this is good to light the way to the outhouse in the night!

Childrens' bed Rooms. You can put a line of rope around the celing to dispell the dark while they're falling asleep without needing to worry about turning off a night light to conserve energy.

I ordered this glow-in-the-dark rope from a previous deal ($3.99 with free shipping). While it the rope is of a decent quality, it does not glow at all. Also, for those that care, it is a stretchy rope. That makes it good for certain applications, but bad for others.

I'm assuming to make it glow(like most glow in the dark products), you must allow it to be in direct light for a period of time, then depending on the quality it should stay lit for a little time(maybe 25 min).

@mmilz90: That's what I assumed as well (though it really should glow for many hours). So, I exposed this to direct sunlight for several hours, then took it into a totally dark closet. No glow whatsoever. Most glow products lose their glow-ability after a few years, and I suspect that they had some old product. The product description on the Harbor Freight website for a similar product says "fluorescent material can be re-charged as often as needed for up to 6 months," so it's not something you want to buy if you think you'll come up with a use for it far in the future.

@cleverett: so did you return it?
Did they accept the return and refund your money, or give you a new rope that glows?

@griz13: It was only $4, so to me it wasn't really worth going through the return process. I'm sure that they probably would have sent me another one if I would have complained, but if it was from the same batch it probably wouldn't have been any better.

@w00tgurl: But wouldn't that be a little too conspicuous?

this is great now people can see me when I pull the ripcord on my parachute.

Well, you sure can't use it to tie someone to the railroad tracks, if it's glowing, the conductor will see them and stop the train.

Hmmm, I would use it around Halloween and make a giant spider web out of it in the front yard, or maybe on my porch roof so the kids don't mess with it.

Every time I see a glow in the dark product I think of Glo Gunk and those Real TV Dinners form Chairman of the Board.

I was comparing prices between this and what was on Amazon and found a slight problem with the description. This site says that the:

Safe work load: 116 lbs, Break strength: 350 lbs

For the 3/16" rope it should be:

Safe working load: 80 Lbs Break strength 240

The stats they give are for the 1/4" rope and not for the 3/16" rope so someone made an error posting it either in the name or description so keep that in mind if you order it. As for price Amazon is slightly better only if you buy the two packs for $10.99. At any rate hope that is useful for you.
