3-Strand Eye Splice
Weight: 0.0 lb
If you are buying a 3 Strand Twisted rope, this is the type of splice you need to purchase. Construction of each splice uses approx. 3 feet of the rope from your total quantity ordered.
Our professional splicing shop can securely add a loop to the end of your 3 strand rope providing a safe and very strong method of attachment.
Ordering one of these will get you what is referred to as a soft splice, meaning it won't have the steel insert shown in the photo above. If you need the insert - called a rope thimble - click HERE to choose the correct thimble for your rope diameter and add it to your cart as a separate line item. Generally, the thimble is only needed if the splice will be rubbing against a solid object like a metal ring or something similar. 99% of the ropes we splice are without thimbles.
We also have an in house art and custom knot department that can make items like the monkeys fist / spliced piece you see in the photos. That item was custom made as a curtain tie-back and we can make something cool for you as well.

Inspecting Your Rope
NOTE: Our ropes are spliced using a specific procedure that makes a consistent eye size each time. The inside diameter of the eye will be proportional to the diameter of the rope. If you require a specific inside diameter for your eye splice, please give us a call so that we can create exactly what you need. Also, purchase of additional rope may be required to create the exact rope you want.
PLEASE BE AWARE...each splice will use approx. 3 feet of rope which is subtracted from the overall length you order. As an example, if you want a 20 foot overall length, order 23 feet of rope, that way when the splicers are done you will have approximately 20 feet of rope with a spliced loop in it. This does not mean that every rope will result in an exact measurement equal to your ordered length of rope minus 3 feet. If you need a specific length of rope with a loop on each end, please call us so that we can discuss the details prior to placing your order. NOTE: Splices in 2 inch ropes will use 4 feet of rope for construction of the splice.
