Chain Splice Tying
Tape rope. Unravel enough for 5 - 7 tucks. Pass the strands into the chain - one strand one way through the chain and two strands the other way. Splice each strand back into the standing end of the rope. Repeat for the second set of tucks, and the third and fourth. Use five to seven sets of tucks for security.
Short Splice Tying
Tape the rope. Unravel enough for about 5 tucks (3 shown here). Push the ends into each other and tape the middle. Make the first complete set of tucks, and then another. Repeat this using the other end. Remove the tapes, tighten, and complete the remaining tucks.
