It’s doubled rope just like the tree squeeze. The little clips I use at each end are called rope booster clamps. They were like a dollar each at e-rigging which is the only place I’ve found them. They provide no structural integrity the way I have them used, it’s really just to keep the 2 legs of rope to lay next to one another.What did you do to secure the eye?
Yep, the core has been replaced with the 1/4 wire rope. It was a 20 foot piece of wire rope, but it actually buried not too difficultly. I pulled out a little of the core, taped the wire rope to it, then slowly milked the cover over the wire rope while pulling on the core from the other end.Looks good to me. Did you have to remove the core from the 16 strand?
Cool project.My understanding is that they use some kind of proprietary stiff rope that isn’t wire core, but it stiffer than normal rope. I looked to buy just the rope but couldn’t find it anywhere for sale, so decided to make mine stiff with the wire core.
