Rope splice clamp
« on: June 15, 2020, 05:52:03 PM »
Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone can tell me where I might be able to get this type of rope splice clamp from?

I know you can get a plastic version with screws, but would like to try and source these first... rope is approx. 12mm in diameter...

Clamp is approx. 50mm long and 20mm wise...

Looks like kernmantle.

You can splice it if need be. I wouldn't want to bet my life on a crimp that may or may not be within manufacturer's spec.

If its only going to be used to clean up the tag end I use thick walled heat shrink tubing that is glue lined.  Works a treat.

Would it have to be glue-lined, or would just normal heat shrink stop the rope from fraying ???

You do know they are installed with a hydraulic driven die?

What is it you want to do with the rope mate? Might be able to just tie a siezing old school style?

If they aren't needed for super high strength, make your own with some copper tube, similar to this guy.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4kw9eENKtw4

I made some tarp guy ropes a similar way years ago. If you are really keen you can make your own swaging tool to do it too.

Fancy one:

My manual jobby for use in a bench vice, made from 10mm steel.
4.2L TD Toyota Troopy, (Clarke's Country Camper Trailer, softfloor.) sold it and bought a Avan Ray small poptop caravan. I miss being able to acces the little tracks off into the scrub.

might be a bit weird, but i am looking to make dog leads (largely for medium to large dogs)...

the pic is of a dog lead that i have had for years... the lead has one of these clamps at each end...

it's strong, yet flexible and tidy and i wanted to make some more and maybe sell...

i know you can get plastic clamps with screws, but they can be dear and i thought i would see if i could get these clamps first...

tired of cheap, thin leads with crap fittings breaking.  i am considering using climbing rope as it is soft, but strong with larger diameters...

just thought if i could replicate that setup, it would go ok...

12mm rope swages and swaging tools on this page.

If you are handy with a die grinder you can make your own swaging tool out of some cheap bolt cutters.

With animals I’d think about putting some shrink wrap over it as well maybe to keep the sharp edges sorted?

Good luck.

Hi,
   For small dial para cord etc I use a zigzag stitch up the two sides and then cover that with a whip.

If you are going to use a soft (double braid?) type rope... google eye splice.  Makes for a very neat finish and won't come apart.  We use splices like the eye splice for lots of points on our yachts.

Sorry just seen your reply. yes, really. I cant find them in bcf online, but I have physically seen them instore with all their other superpeg stuff (rope. pegs etc)

edit: found them here:
https://www.bcf.com.au/p/gold-zinc-splice-clip/M114340.html#q=splice%2Bclips&lang=en_AU&start=1

says for 8mm rope, but I reckon for a dog lead, you will make it fit. you wont need a hydraulic crimper. Any waterpump plier or vice will swage it ok.

thanks, but those ones are different to the one in my pic... heaps smaller and they are rounded, where-as the one in my pic are squared off...

thanks anyways... i have some of those, but am looking for something bigger like my pic...
