Double-braid Polyester splice

The double braided splice on a polyester rope is a classic in modern splicing. So, here is something to improve your general knowledge in terms of ropes: A tutorial that shows all the stages for splicing a core inside a cover and the other way round, without getting your needles in a twist.

The double-braid splice goes by that name because it refers only to covered ropes composed of braided cores and a braided cover. Also bear in mind that the technique presented here is only suitable for polyester rope because the core and the cover bear the load together. The cover of Polyester ropes is partially structural; however, this is not the case for all Dyneema® ropes. The double-braid splice is not very difficult to make, but still requires precision. Some details like “shifting of the cover” must not be neglected, at the risk of not being able to close the spliced eye. There are also traps to avoid, like splicing an eye that is too small because it could shrink. Don’t waste your time stitching the eye because the double-braid splice is “self-locking”: the tautness increases with the tension applied to the rope. So, be a good student and don’t hesitate to watch the video several times in order to assimilate it well. All in all, one never tires of classics!
