We often need to turn the end of a rope into a splice in order to hook an accessory or another rope to it. To do this, it is necessary to create a joint, that is, make the rope end in a hole through which another element can pass.
Depending on the construction, here are some instructions of how to prepare a splice:
Double braided splice loop:
1. Mark an "X" in the core. Extract the core pulling from the cover through the point X.
2. At position B the cover is inserted into the core and vice versa, at position C the cover is extracted through the core.
3. From position B to D the core is inside the cover, until it is extracted through position A.
4. Position B is run along it coincides with position A. The loop is finished.
12/16 strands splice loop:
1. We introduce one of the ends of the halyard through the points A B C D respecting a distance of 4 to 6 stages between these points. The recommended distance between points D-E is 50 times the nominal diameter.
2. Equal the extrems of the halyard to reach the desired loop. With a small cord and a needle make a few sews to tie the halyard to avoid the movement of the loop.
3. The loop is finished.
