used rope eye splice double braid Class I
Class I ropes are made from any or all of the following fibers olefin polyester or nylon
This is an eye splice which can be performed on used rope This is an allpurpose
splice techniqe designed for people who generally splice used rope as frequently
as new rope It retains up to 90 of the average new rope strength and in used
rope up to the same proportion of residual used rope strength
You may wish to read the supplemental information Special Tips for
Splicing Used Rope page 8 before beginning
Splicing used rope can be made easier by first understanding the rope condition
Natural shrinkage has occurred caused by water and heat In addition the cover
yarns have often been abraded Soak the section of rope to be spliced in water
for several minutes this lubricates and loosens fibers 1 layer of tape
Core must be extracted from
cover at this point

Tie a tight slip knot approximately five fid lengths from X
This must be done
Tie a slipknot about 5 fid length from X
step
extracting the core
Bend rope sharply at X With the pusher or any sharp tool such as
an ice pick awl or marlin spike spread the cover strands to expose
core First pry then pull the core completely out of cover from X
to the taped end of the rope Put one layer only on end of core
Tip After marking cover untape end of rope grasp end of core Prying out the
core
and slide back cover pulling out core This loosens and bunches
up cover strands in the area of Point X and makes it easier to open
R
up cover strands for extraction Also thoroughly loosen 34 strand
pairs at X to assure a large and flexible hole for extraction see left
1 layer of tape
To assure correct positioning of Mark 1 do the following cover
Holding the exposed core slide cover as far back towards the
core
tightly tied slip knot as you can Then firmly smooth the cover
back from the slip knot towards taped end Mark 1
Smooth again until all cover slack is removed
Then mark the core where it comes out
of the cover This is Mark 1
marking the core
step
Again slide cover toward slipknot to expose more core
From Mark 1 measure along core towards X a distance
equal to the short section of tubular fid 2 short sections
with wire fid and make two heavy marks This is Mark 2

Tip Before burying the cover over the crossover
For burying process with larger ropes it is helpful to securely anchor
A Anchor loop of slipknot by tying it to stationary object before starting to bury slip knot attach a small line to the braided core at the
crossover and
You can then use both hands and weight of body to more easily milk cover over mechanically apply tension with either a block and tackle
capstan
core and crossover See Fig 1 2 comealong or power winch This tension will reduce diameter of
core and crossover for easier burying
B Holding the crossover tightly milk all the excess cover from R to X
Flex and loosen the rope at the crossover point during the final burying process
Crossover Firmly
Hammering cover at point X will help loosen strands
secured
Small line Core
The use of shock cord in a rolling hitch around the cover is useful to make final Pull
burying easier and more complete Pull on the hitch toward the eye until all cover Mechanical tension
slack is removed
See page 8 for Special Tips for Splicing Used Rope
10 finishing the Now untie the slipknot If eye is not the right size carefully check Steps 1 through 9
If a hollow spot appears at the throat this means that the core tail was cut off too short
Do not worry as this does not affect the splice performance nor its strength Reason
the total load of an eye splice is split between its own two legs Therefore each side
of the splice only has to support 50 of the total load The braided cover alone can
handle this load factor
You should whip the eye splice starting at base of throat
of eye especially if rope is 1 diameter and larger
See pages 1113 for additional information
on whipping procedures Tail of core
