Knots and Ropework

Knots, Bends , Hitches , Splices and Seizings are all ways of fastening together the parts of one or more ropes or for attaching a rope to some object such as a ring or spar.

Bends and a hitches are ways of fastening ropes to one another or to spars. A splice is made by untwisting two rope ends and weaving them together. A seizing is made by fastening together two spars, two ropes, or two parts of the same rope by means of an additional rope.
