Tips & Tricks - Trick #4a

For those of you who do not have a cleat, or would like two handed pulling action, find a small block of hardwwod (5 cm x 2 cm x 20 cm will do). Make sure the corners are still sharp, not rounded. Pass the weave rope in loops over the block, first go the right, then to the left, then to the right and lastly to the left again. You will end up with a design like the photo above. Make sure the rope is tight as it crosses itself. Now pull firmly on the block. The rope should stay in place.
