How to use a D-SPLICER SoftFid

Splicing ropes can be tough when a rope is tightly braided or has little space. A SoftFid is an ideal solution in those cases. It can be easily applied with a D-SPLICER pulling fid. The core can then be pulled through. If more power is needed, one could even use a winch for this purpose. Watch this video by Premium Ropes how to use the SoftFid.

Softfid

When rope splicing it can be very difficult to pull through a rope. Even a D-SPLICER pulling fid will not always do the job as more strength needs to be applied and/or there is not enough space.

A Softfid is another great innovation by D-SPLICER. Simple and effective! You first pull through the thin Dyneema rope and then clamp the rope into the white cover. By pulling the Softfid, the cover will tighten itself around the rope.

D-SPLICER used by Alex Thomson Racing team

At facebook we spotted this picture where the rigging manager of the Alex Thomson racing team splices together two ropes to create a strop which will be used to connect back stays onto the rig. That strop has to hold up to 6 tons of load delivered from the mast.  Nice to see that the D-SPLICER fixed needle to be used.
