The 5 Strongest Ways to Tie Ropes Together



Sharing buttons:

in this video I'm going to show you five

different ways to tie two ropes together

[Music]

the first one is going to be the blood

knot this one works really well for

monofilament lines but also works with

standard rope in light as well starting

with the working ends overlapping each

other and going up see ways you'll begin

to take the first working end and

looping itself around itself and the

other line it helps to keep that loops

tight and you'll do three to five loops

when you're done doing the loops you'll

tuck the working end between the two

lines

[Music]

the next step is to mirror the other

side doing the exact same thing only

going the opposite direction

and you'll finish by tucking the working

end in the same fashion between the two

lines

[Music]

when you're done the working ends are

going to face opposite directions

[Music]

the next knot is the triple fisherman's

knot this is great for absorbing shock

and it uses the coils to absorb a lot of

the energy you could say it's more

cushion for the pushin and it's a reason

why a lot of climbers use this knot two

creatives you'll start in very much the

same way as a blood knot with the

working ends overlapping and pointing in

opposite directions you'll do three

wraps around itself and the other line

but instead of tucking the working end

between the two lines you're going to

weave it inside of the coil

[Music]

the same thing is done on the other side

going the opposite direction

[Music]

when you pull it tight and finish it off

the two coils are gonna fit nicely into

each other

you

[Music]

[Music]

the Flemish band or the figure-eight

Bend is a solid knot that can hold a lot

of weight to start the figure-eight

you'll begin with a bite and you'll

twist it twice once the bite is twisted

you'll reach through the eye and pull

the working in through it to create the

figure eight

[Music]

the working end of the second line

follows a line of the figure-eight

starting from the working end

[Music]

the finishing knot should be neat

without any crossing lines

you can do an overhand knot around the

standing end to finish the ends if you'd

like this helps secure everything and

it's also referred to as a safety knot

the sheet Bend is a good knot to tie

quickly and it's really easy to untie it

can also be used with two lines of

varying diameters you'll start with the

bite into the thicker line and with the

working end of the second line we'll

bring it through the eye of the bite

you'll take the working end of the

second line wrap itself around and tuck

it underneath itself

[Music]

to make this more secure pass the line

through itself a second time to turn it

into a double sheet Bend this knot is

good for two ropes of varying diameters

but if the difference of the diameters

is super drastic then the next bet is

the next knot which is the racking Bend

the racking Bend is a knot that I'd turn

to if the diameters are super different

such as a heaving line for pulling a

much heavier diameter rope the heavier

rope can be either on a bite or on a

loop not such as the figure 8 loop shown

here bring the working end of the

smaller diameter rope through the eye

and make a series of figure 8 weaves and

for this you will want three to five

laps

[Music]

to finish off the snot you'll tuck the

working end under the last wrap to keep

it secured
