Short splice

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“In making a short splice the ends of the ropes are unlaid for a short distance and brought together, the strands interlacing (A). Taking any one strand, this is woven into the laid strands of the other rope, working from left to right; the other two stands are similarly woven, but from right to left."—Finley, 1917
