Splicing Rope

Novabraid double braid and hollow or single braid ropes are easily spliced using proven splicing methods and a few standard tools including properly sized fids, scissors, tape, and whipping twine. A spliced eye should be as strong as the rope itself. Knots in rope will generally diminish the rope strength by half. Ropes with parallel strand cores are not generally spliced. For complete splicing rope instructions for most marine, industrial, and decorative applications please refer to Barbara Merry’s excellent instruction book.
