lockable double handled rope wanted

Hi,
Looking for an double handled rope that has a locking mechanism between the two handles that allows you to use them as either a single handle or a double handle. The one I have is about 40 years old and I do not believe they make them anymore. Any ideas out there?

Wow I learned to slalom on those as a kid! It was wayyy before we had decent cameras on the boat so I know I don't have any pics. Hadn't really noticed they weren't made anymore, just never had reason to look I guess. Hope you find one.

Pictures of locking double handled rope.

Attached are a couple of pictures of Mom's handles. The metal has fatigued and broken away from the handle.

Talking Thank you sooo much

Hi Everybody,
Mom and I got the best Christmas present ever. We received a surprise package in the mail with a awesome set of lockable double handles for a ski rope. What a wonderful gift. Mom will be turning 80 this year and is looking forward to skiing with her brand new (50 year old) favorite handles. Thank you Thank you George, you are wonderful.

Nice, Merry Christmas. I remember those. That's all my wife would slalom with when we were in high school and college. The boys learned on the "trainer" with the big V.
Back in the day......
