- Make a rope splice that is stronger than a knot, practical and versatile -
Splicing is when two rope ends are joined or connected by interweaving individual strands, the strength of which is based on the physical principles of friction and self-locking. Unlike a knot, splicing does not affect the breaking load of the line, and it is capable of attaining a rope's full strength. The result is a rope that will last much longer, which reduces costs, plus additional rope thickness is kept to a minimum. There is also a big saving in terms of weight. Furthermore, back splicing looks more professional than whipping or taping the ends or using heat shrink tubing.
- All it takes is a little practice -
