Learn how to make a splice
1. Divide the core from the cover, the length of the separated stretch is determined by the thickness of the rope. As thicker it is there will be more length inlaid.
2. Inlay the core separated on the reverse of the cover. There exist many types of needles to inlay ropes, the most common ones are the tubular ones made from stainless steel. For a correct inlaid that do not damage the cover, the core and that does not cross over the core of the rope, is recommended to make thicker the length of the inlaid making the cover to go up in the reverse direction of the splice.
3. Once inlaid the core, it has to be inlaid the cover inside the incoming core. The length to be inlaid will approximately be of 10 cm.
4. Before pulling and cutting the cover inlaid the core, it has to be calculated where to cut by pulling and presenting the splice.
5. To break the inlaid cover is necessary in order that this one could enter into the splice without generating a too big thickness.
6. Closure of the splice. At this time the self-tailing splice show its properties. As we tension more the rope the closure of the splice gets shorter.
7. Put the thimble before putting all the tension on the closure. Thimbles must be imprisoned inside the splices. If this does not happen, they can move and end up cutting the rope.
8. Final closure of the splice. High load test to verify the performance of the splice.
9. To cut and break the rest of the core inlaid for a uniform presentation.
10. Security sewing. Using waxed thread between 1 and 1,5 mm, the splice is finished.
