Splicing your own ropes?

Recommended Posts

Mark, the stitched eye2eye perform great.  I have a couple of Blue (Stein IIRC) one and they work great.

I’ve done a load of fiddling with db splicing for hitch cords and come up with a splice that works really well and breaks high. Definitely not in line with manufacturer or any other splicing instructions though...

Best starting out on scrap rope, then try a lanyard. Don’t rush it.

My experimental db splice involved lock brummeling the core and cover using the standard bury lengths, and then burying this into the core.  It broke at around 92 percent of the rope’s break strength.

Hello everyone,

I'm keen to learn how to splice my own ropes, friction cords, etc. I’ve done a few locking Brummells recently but only on my throwlines, accessory cords. Stuff which is not life support, which I followed some instructions from YouTube.

It’s my understanding that there’s different splices for different constructions of rope and that some ropes require some alterations? 
What’s peoples recommendations on what splices to try?

wheres the best instructions? 
I’m particularly keen on splicing OP for my hitches. Where would be best place to get a batch break tested before I started using them? 
cheers for the help. 
Mike

Hello Mike. How did you get on? Sorry I didn't reply earlier when I was tagged. I must have missed it for some reason. Fire away with any questions

Hiya Tommy. Its ok, no worries. To be honest I haven’t really tried any to be honest. Just spliced a few throwlines and other bits and bobs with Brummels. But that’s really it

If you've not done much, 16 strand is a good enough place to start. Samson have some great instructions to follow. Have you got a fid etc? The only issue with the US directions are that a lot of them use push fits so you have to reverse the insert exit points.

 

If you send me a PM with your email address I will send you some videos if you want
