Help! Stage Rigging came undone, no idea how to re knot

Dear All,

On the last dive, my rigging (pre-made from a company called DTD) came undone at the bottom boltsnap, luckily as I was getting back on the boat.

Now I know my way around bowlines, sheet bends etc etc, but I can for the life of me, figure out to fix this.



Here is what is should look like



Hope someone can help me, and for me not to mess it up! Thanks

Hi,

Here is what you need: DIR-diver.com - Stagebottle rigging

Basically it's a fisherman's knot: File:Fisherman's knot.png - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

not sure about the fishermans knot, i would simply do a square knot and burn it (if it is nylon)

Re: Help! Stage Rigging came undone, no idea how to re knot

Wh make my own rigging I prefer to use an "eye splice" by far this is the neatest and most secure way to make loops... the harder you pull the tighter it gets... the rope used on your rigging is very small in diameter so you might have some difficulty doing it.... I generally use 1/3 or thicker rope.. See this link on how to splice it..

Boat Rope -Make an Eye Splice for Mooring or Anchor Line

Re: Help! Stage Rigging came undone, no idea how to re knot

It should be rigged so that the gear clamp between the fishermans knot will hold the running ends of cordage in place even if BOTH sides of the fishermans fails. This it to prevent EXACTLY you failure here.

This is also why you don't use a square knot. If it comes undone then you have a loose end.

Thanks all.

Fisherman's Knot, did the trick. Phew.

Was a bit tricky with the small about of line on one end, but did it in the end. Heated up the ends and bashed them down. I hope that is the end of that. No pun intended.

Cheers all.

If you don't know knots, tie lots!


Ya, the fisherman exactly like Cam said works very well for me.
