Step 1 Ready to splice – carrier rope ends, Kenbest® Fid, William Kenyon® safety knife, tape and marker.
Step 2 Mark both ends approximately 18″ (46cm) and 40″ (91cm) from end.
Step 3 Push the basket back, insert one end of the rope, and release (to ensure a tight grip on the rope, compress the basket with your fingers). Insert the point of the fid at the 18″ (46cm) mark on the opposite end.
Step 4 Push the fid through the rope and bring it out at the 40″ (91cm) mark.
Step 5 To make a proper taper, pull the end through and mark at approximately 12″ (38cm) and 7″ (18cm). Insert your William Kenyon® “lock back” safety knife at the 12″ (38cm) mark and lift slightly one set of ends. Cut and remove. Repeat at the 7″ (18cm) mark.
Step 6 The tapered end. Work back into the center of the rope completely.
Step 7 Repeat steps 2-6 for opposite end. The completed splice.
