Tested up to 3400lbs!
Winner of Sail Magazine's 2006 Pittman Editor's Choice, the SplicingNut is an innovative product with many uses.
Technically speaking, it is a two part device which mechanically forms a loop in braided line similar to a splice. Made of high strength glass reinforced polymer, the SplicingNut is incredibly strong and speeds the attachment of hardware. (Please note: the SplicingNut will not work with whipped ends or line that is older and swollen. It also does not work well with Sta-Set X due to the lines inflexibility.)
Not so technically speaking, the SplicingNut makes splices so simple that anyone who can screw in a light bulb, can splice a braided line.
InoDesign, in conjunction with the U.S. Army's Natick Soldier Center, Natick, MA, has tested and developed SplicingNut for the last three years. The SplicingNut holds a patent and there is no similar product on the market.
Here are some examples of where the SplicingNut not only makes attaching hardware easy, but is also prevent other problems:
The bowline knot, for example, is notorious for snagging at inappropriate moments; the low profile, bullet shape of the SplicingNut prevents this. The bitter end is secured, not flapping in the breeze.
Also, even the best tied bowline comes undone when it is shaken violently, seldom does this occur under convenient circumstances. The SplicingNut will not back out, or come undone unless you want it to. The SplicingNut can be released under tension.
The SplicingNuts' long tapered form does not allow the splice to easily run into a block where it could jam the line into the sheave. The SplicingNut forms a positive stop prior to the loop and thus prevents the line from jamming in the sheave.
The SplicingNut has the ability to be repositioned underway where circumstances or wear dictate, a typical splice does not.
The SplicingNut is so easy, you'll find endless uses aboard. You can even splice Bungee cord.
