How To Splice Rope Videos

 

 

  1. Tie knot 3 meters from end then cut off heat sealed end, pushing back outer case exposing 10cms of inner core. Holding end of case to the core, push back slack for 1 meter.
  2. Mark 'A' 30cms from end. Form eye size, mark 'B' on standing part of rope.
  3. Open cover at 'B', and pull out core, taping it with rigging tape opposite 'A'.
  4. From tape, reduce core by 50% and tape loose ends, pushing slack back to 'B' until core starts to move. Insert needle 35cms from 'B' and, taking care not to ensnare core, push needle down inside outer case until it emerges at 'A'.
  5. Thread core tail into eye of needle pull out of rope until eye has formed and end of core has emerged.
  6. Unpick and cut out 6 yarn ends 5cms from eye end of case tail. Push back some slack towards the eye ready for next stage. Insert needle 20cms from neck of the eye, emerging at 'A/B', thread cover into needle and pull down through rope.
  7. Pull tight, give the splice a good shock to bed the yarns down, and cut off ends. Finally, run a hand over cover from eye end downwards until the ends disappear inside the rope.
  8. If a thimble is required, insert while eye is being formed, before ends are pulled tight.

 

 

 

 

  1. Mark 'A' on the rope one fid length from the end. Form eye size and mark 'B' opposite 'A'. Tie a knot about 150cm from 'B'. Open cover at 'B', mark inner core with some tape and extract core using a small fid. Take out the slack from the cover by sliding your hand from the knot towards 'B'.
  2. Withdraw approx. 18cm more core from 'B' and mark this 'C' on the core. Now extract a further 12cm and mark this 'D' on the core.
  3. For ease of splicing, extract more core and make a lock using a small fid near 'B'. Feed cover end into needle eye, insert at 'C' and push through until it exits at 'D'. Remove needle and pull cover back over to hide end.
  4. Thread core end into needle, insert near 'C' and push back through until it exits at 'B'.
  5. Pull core through cover until the slack is taken up.
  6. Get the splice ('C'-'D') into cover by sliding the cover back over it until it reaches 'A'. Point 'A' and 'B' should now meet. Cut off exposed core and stretch the eye until the core disappears under the cover.
  7. You should now have a perfect Eye Splice. If you want to insert a thimble, the eye size should be calculated less the circumference of the thimble.

 

 

 

 

  1. Unlay the end of the 3 strand rope and form an eye in an anticlockwise direction
  2. Tuck the middle (top) loose strand under the nearest strand on the standing part of the rope, against the lay of the rope
  3. Turn the rope and tuck the second loose strand under the next stand in the standing part of the rope - against the lay.
  4. Turn the rope again and tuck the final loose strand under the strand in the standing part, between the first two tucks
  5. Complete steps 2 - 4 another 4 or 5 times and then trim the ends

 

 

 

 

  1. Multiply the diameter of the rope by 50 and mark this measurement from the end of the rope, leave a gap for twice the required eye size and insert the fid and pull end of rope through until it reaches the mark.
  2. Then insert the fid again approximately two plaits down in the opposite direction and repeat this operation twice.
  3. Lay loose end alongside main rope and make a mark approx. 8cm from end of tail. Insert loose end into splicing fid and insert fid at the last tuck and push through the centre of the rope, to emerge at your mark.
  4. To taper the tail end, mark six successive plaits in one direction and a further six successive plaits in the opposite direction.
  5. Pull the marked plaits out of the tail end
  6. Cut the pulled out plaits off the tail end
  7. The slack in the main body of the rope can then be pulled down over the tail end of the rope. If necessary, for further security, a suitable whip can then be applied at the last insertion point.
