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 1 marking the measurements Mark X Mark R From loop desired size step Tape end to be spliced with one thin layer of tape Then 1 fid length measure one tubular fid length 2 wire fid lengths from end of rope and mark This is point R Reference From R form or a loop the size of the eye desired and mark This is Point 2 wire fids up to 13 circ X where you extract core from inside the cover If using a thimble form the loop around the thimble Tie a tight slip knot approximately five fid lengths from X This must be done Tie a slipknot about 5 fid length from X 2step 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 X 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 3 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 R 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 cover 2 short Mark on Fid sections with From Mark 2 measure in the same direction one fid length wire fid X plus another short section of the fid with wire fid double Mark 3 Mark 2 Mark 1 measurements make 3 heavy marks This is Mark 3 cor e One fid length plus another short section Short section of lid Page 1 of 3 2090 Thornton Street T 3603844669 Ferndale WA USA 98248 F 3603840572 used rope eye splice double braid Class I 4 Marking Cover Strands m a r k i n g t h

single or of strands 6 right right around rope and half revolve to the left paired and left er Cov Beginning at R and working toward taped end of the cover X Mark 3 Mark 2 Mark 1 count 8 consecutive strands one or two which revolve to the Core right or left Mark the 8th This is point T Make Mark T go completely around cover Starting at T and working toward the taped cover end count and mark every second right set of strands for a total of 6 Again starting at T count and mark every second left set of strands for a total of 6 Cutting Strands R T step 5 p e r f o r m i n g t h e ta p e r First remove tape from cover end Start with last marked set of cover strands toward the end cut and pull them completely out Cut and remove next marked strands and continue with each right and left marked strands until you reach point T Do not cut beyond this point Tapered Cover ver Retape The end of the cover has now been tapered from T to Co Mark 3 Mark 2 Mark 1 the end Retape tapered end Removing Cut Strands Core Note If the same strands is marked twice by accident continue as though it is another strand 6 R PUTTING THE COVER INSIDE THE CORE ver Co Pinch T tapedstep end Insert fid into core at Mark 2 Slide it through and out at Tapered Mark 3 X Cover to insert into fid Add extra tape to tapered cover end then jam it tightly Mark 3 Mark 2 into the hollow end of fid Hold core lightly at Mark 3 place pusher point into taped end and push fid and cover Tapered through from Mark 2 and out at Mark 3 Mark 1 Cover ver With wire fid first press prongs into cover then tape over Co Core Insert fid and milk braid over fid while pulling fid through Mark 2 to Mark 3 X Take the fid off the cover Continue pulling cover tail Mark 3 Mark 2 R through the core until Mark T on the cover meets Mark 2 Then remove tape from end of tapered cover Core Cover T Mark 1 Remove Tape Core 7 For large eye reinsert fid and core at same point it comes out Cov reinserting core into cover er R step You are now ready to put core back into cover from T to X Insert fid at T jam the taped core end tightly into end of fid With pusher push fid and core around Insert core into cover at point T to and through opening at X exactly where core was first extracted When X using wire fid attach fid to taped core After fid is on milk braid over fid while Mark 3 pulling through from T to X Mark 2 Depending on eye size fid may not be long enough to reach from T to X in Fid and end of core Mark 1 Core one pass If not bring fid out through cover pull core through and reinsert fid comes out at X into exact hole it came out of Do this as many times as needed to reach X Page 2 of 3 2090 Thornton Street T 3603844669 Ferndale WA USA 98248 F 3603840572 used rope eye splice double braid Class I 8 p r e pa r i n g t o b u r y c o r e Cut core after smoothing step from T Next pull on core tail coming out at X then on tapered cover coming out at Core X Mark 3 the crossover should be tightened until opening in crossover is Cover approximately equal to diameter of rope Pull to tighten crossover Crossover Hold the loop at the crossover with one hand With other hand firmly smooth then smooth from T T R towards X in one direction and towards Mark 3 in other direction Remove all to bury inside core Tapered cover Hold Here must disappear Smooth Mark 2 cover slack inside here Tapered cover will disappear at Mark 3 Then cut core tail off close where it comes out at X Cover Beginning at slipknot milk cover by sliding hand toward loop X Milk cover until core is buried 9 to here R Mark 3 T burying the exposed core Mark 2 Crossover step Hold rope at slipknot and with other hand milk cover toward splice gently at first Crossover then more firmly Cover will slide over Mark 3 Mark 2 the crossover and R Core Then smooth loop from T to X removing all slack Continue milking until all cover slack between knot and throat of eye has been removed Pull 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 r ve slack is removed Co See page 8 for Special Tips for Splicing Used Rope10 finishing the splicestep 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 disappears End of buried section here Crossover point is buried here Whip Page 3 of 3 2090 Thornton Street T 3603844669 Ferndale WA USA 98248
