How do you tie off a carabiner?

Fishing carabiner

QuantumBrick You can link using a Then attach one or two opposite locking carabiners to the loop of your harness. You should never: Edit: At first I thought that attaching directly to the rope from the middle was not a good idea because it would take up too much room in the leg/waist loops and maybe burn the rope, but after some thought and trying it at home I see that there is nothing wrong with it. Tying from the middle using a backed variation of the bowline or a figure 8 knot seems fine to me. ShemSeger If you use a carabiner, then you’re not tying from the middle of the rope, you’re buckling. QuantumBrick @ShemSeger I misunderstood, then. Anyway … My edit covers that part, I think. You can bind with a bowline or figure 8 using the bight as if it were a single rope. I would never do that, because it would create a mess on my harness and “clipping” to a carabiner is much easier. ShemSeger Bowline backed up with a carabiner was my first thought, but I was curious to see if anyone had a good knot to do the job.

Side note: when you do something like this that is out of your normal routine: **be very aware of what you are doing all the time **. Tying in the middle of the rope is what led to Rannveig Aamodt’s near-fatal fall: http://www.rannveigaamodt.com/accident/

@MichaelBorgwardt – Thanks for sharing that link to Rannveiga Aamodt’s website. Just read the story of her accident. You’re right, there are some lessons there, and very inspiring to read her how she pulled it off.

A knot that is simple and easy to use, explicitly for the purpose of tying it in the middle of the rope, would be the Alpine Butterfly. Tie it and then attach it to your safety loop with one or two locking carabiners.

Again, this is not tied in the middle of a rope, it is *trimmed* in the middle of the rope. Also, Apline butterflies are best suited for tying in the middle of a run, not for tying in the middle of a rope when both ends are pulling behind you.

@Lagerbaer for the same reason you always tie to the end of a rope instead of holding it: it’s safer. You run the risk of cross loading a carabiner or forgetting to lock/unlock and accidentally stepping off the rope when using a carabiner. The risk may be minimal, but it is still there. There is also the potential scenario where you need to tie into the center of a rope, but don’t have spare carabiners.

Types of knots and moorings for camping

Generally, knots reduce the shock force by 15 to 30%.    But knots such as the Bulin have a much greater reducing effect (25 to 30%).    That is why this is the knot preferred by rope leaders.

Whatever knot you have to tie, tie it impeccably, keeping the lines parallel and avoiding twisting or twisting.    Tighten and finish all knots tightly.    Always tie knots with perfection, so that you will automatically recognize if a knot is well or poorly tied.    Thus, even when it gets dark or you are tired, you will be able to detect if a knot is defective.

Main Use: The Flat Ribbon Knot is used to close a piece of flat ribbon in a ring shape.    This webbing can be used to rig stations, or as a lifeline, or to self secure with a Prusik. This knot has a tendency to loosen, so make sure that it is always tight, and that there are at least 5 cm of slack at the ends of the webbing.

Procedure: a) pass one end of the webbing through a loop of the webbing; b) pass another end (of the other rope) through the same loop, following the trajectory of the first but in the opposite direction; c) pass enough rope so that 5 to 7 cm. of each end remain; e) tighten the knot.

Fishing carabiner what it is used for

The hanging chair can be attached to a beam with a suspension bolt. The suspension bolt is screwed into the beam with a drill. The other end of the suspension bolt is screwed into the seat of the chair, which already has holes in it. If you do not find a hole, drill another one. Then tighten both ends of the suspension bolt with a drill.

Take a drill, a dowel and a hook. Drill a hole in the ceiling with the drill bit the diameter of your dowel, insert your chemical dowel into it and drop your hook there. 50 cm seems to be the ideal height at which you can place your chair!

If you want to attach your hanging chair to a tree, simply make a loop by folding the rope into two equal parts. Twist the bracket, keeping the loop at the desired height. Then thread the ends of the rope through the loop. Tighten securely and you’re done.

Suspended from the rafters Simply wrap the rope around the rafter to get the most out of it. In short, it’s as easy as an exterior installation. For safety, it is recommended to extend the ropes so that the seat of the hanging chair is about 30 cm above the ground.
