Backsplice

A back splice gives a permanent finish to the end of a three strand rope to prevent it from undoing. Please be aware that a back splice will increase the diameter of a rope by about 33%.

Heatshrink

The application of a strong, rubberised band on the end of the rope, prevents fraying and keeps the rope clean and tidy.

Splice - Soft Eye

A strong spliced rope eye without a thimble. A soft eye splice creates a permanent eye loop at the end of a rope and can applied to most ropes - three strand, braid on braid & even Dyneema. Allows for a shackle or fitting to be securely fitted. Most typical use is on yachts as a halyard.

Splice - Hard Eye Galvanised

A hard eye splice is created the same way as the soft eye splice with the addition of a thimble being spliced in. This creates a stronger attachment point & reduces the chance of wear. The thimble can either be galvanised steel, stainless steel or a lightweight nylon. To ensure the thimble does not slip out of the eye splice we ensure it is whipped onto the rope.

Whipped

A strong, fine twine applied tightly to the end of a rope to prevent fraying and provide the rope with an elegant finish. Standard way to finish all marine ropes.

Splice - 10'' Soft Eye

A strong spliced rope eye without a thimble. A soft eye splice creates a permanent eye loop at the end of a rope and can applied to most ropes - three strand, braid on braid & even Dyneema. Allows for a shackle or fitting to be securely fitted. Most typical use is on yachts as a halyard.

Nylon Eye Splice

A lightweight white thimble bound tightly into a rope splice and useful for light to medium ropes where the load & wear is low to medium.

Soft Eye Splice

A strong spliced rope eye without a thimble. A soft eye splice creates a permanent eye loop at the end of a rope and can applied to most ropes - three strand, braid on braid & even Dyneema. Allows for a shackle or fitting to be securely fitted. Most typical use is on yachts as a halyard.

Soft Eye Splice + Fixed Snap Shackle

A rope spliced onto a snap shackle that allows for easy removal or attachment. Usually used on yachts for attaching to a spinnaker or jib.

Soft Eye Splice + Swivel Snap Shackle

A rope spliced onto a snap shackle that swivels that allows for easy removal or attachment. Usually used on yachts for attaching to a spinnaker or jib.

Softeye Splice + Wichard Fixed Snap

A rope spliced onto a a high quality Wichard snap shackle that allows for easy removal or attachment. Usually used on larger or race yachts for attaching to a spinnaker or jib where the loads are heavier.

Softeye Splice + Wichard Swivel Snap

A rope spliced onto a Wichard snap shackle that swivels that allows for easy removal or attachment. Used on larger or racing yachts for attaching to a spinnaker or jib where the loads are higher.

Softeye Splice + Captive Pin Shackle

A rope spliced onto a shackle that allows for easy removal or attachment. Usually used as a halyard on yachts for attaching to a mainsail or jib.

Softeye Splice + Wichard Captive Pin

A rope spliced onto a Wichard shackle that allows for easy removal or attachment. Usually used as a halyard on yachts for attaching to a mainsail or jib.

Stainless Steel Eye Splice

A high quality marine grade stainless steel thimble bound tightly into a rope splice. Good for ropes where the load & wear is medium to high and shackles are attached.

Long Splice

A strong extra wide eye splice, a minimum of 9’’ in diameter and generally made onto the end of a mooring rope to put through a cleat and make mooring on a pontoon easy.

Heat Seal

The application of a strong, rubberised band on the end of the rope, prevents fraying and keeps the rope clean and tidy.

Crown Knot

The Crown knot is the first part of a Back Splice. When the end of a three-stranded rope starts to fray, a crown should be tied immediately with a back splice to follow. This protects the rope until the back splice can be replaced with a whipping.

12" Loop Splice

A strong extra wide eye splice, a minimum of 9’’ in diameter and generally made onto the end of a mooring rope to put through a cleat and make mooring on a pontoon easy.

Galvanised Eye Splice

A hard eye splice is created the same way as the soft eye splice with the addition of a thimble being spliced in. This creates a stronger attachment point & reduces the chance of wear. The thimble can either be galvanised steel, stainless steel or a lightweight nylon. To ensure the thimble does not slip out of the eye splice we ensure it is whipped onto the rope.

Whipping W/ Pulling Eye

A pulling eye with whipping is made to the end of a halyard to create a strong, easy method for attaching a mousing line to when reeving a mast and deckgear.
