How to Splice Nylon Rope?


Splicing is a way of combining two lengths effectively. You will need two lengths of nylon rope and two zip ties or string for splicing. Mark off 3-4 inches from the ends of each rope and use the zip tie or string to prevent the ropes from unraveling.Place the two ends next to each other and twist the rope between your fingers to create a small gap in the first strands. Lace the unwoven strands through the gaps in the strands and repeat on the other rope. Draw the rope ends together by pulling on the strands and weave in more of the strands while twisting the rope above where the new strands are woven in. Repeat this until all the strands are woven in and repeat the same with the other rope. Seal the ends using tape or a match to prevent them from unravelling.
