Northern Rigging is dedicated to providing you with the best service available. If you need any help choosing the right rope for a specific application, or which type of splice is appropriate, please contact us!
Splices are ideal for attaching hardware such as halyard shackles, snap shackles, or eye loops to the end of sheets, halyards, guys, etc. A splice is stronger than a knot and less bulky. We can splice plain eyes or re-use your old shackles if you'd like to mail them to us.
A proper splice will reduce line strength by 10% or less. A knot can reduce strength by over 50%.
Double braid (class 1) eye splices use about one foot of line.
12-strand and core-core (class 2) eye splices use about two feet of line.
Typical turnaround time on custom rigging orders is 1-3 days.
