3 Strand Crown Splice

3-Strand Crown Splice

Class 1 3-strand ropes are made from any or all of the following fibers: Olefin, Polyester, Nylon

Although the 3-strand splice is the most common splice, and simple to perform, technique is important to preserve splice strength. Take care that the tucks lie neatly; rope strength can be lost if the strands are twisted incorrectly.

Tools Required: Fid; tape or whipping twine; marking pen, scissors or a sharp knife; hot knife or heat source; ruler.

Unlay the end of your rope, (sealing or taping the strand ends of rope will prevent them from unraveling) and lay the right-hand strand across the other two as illustrated.

Pull all strands snug, then tuck them in sequence over and under the strands in the main body of the rope, as in a short splice. Roll the splice under your foot or with a board, and clip protruding ends.

*CAUTION: Do not clip the ends too close to the splice.
