Sizing Ropeze Rope Clamps to Rope Types

Ropeze can be used with many different types of rope, but the most commonly used is solid braid nylon and solid braid polypropylene rope.

Ropeze Sizing

Typically, three strand nylon rope runs true to size when being paired with the same sized Ropeze clamp. However, a triple strand dense type rope, such as Kernmantle or Hemp rope, will require a larger sized clamp for it to fit properly.

Ropeze Rope Clamp Installation Process

Ropeze can be used either by themselves or with a booster clamp.
First, secure the strands of rope with electrical tape ensuring that at least a three-quarter inch wide length of tape is wrapped around the rope.

Then, cut the rope to length making sure that there is at least a half inch length of tape remaining at the end of the rope.

Disassemble the clamp and place the non-threaded side on a flat surface facing up with the screws protruding through both holes.

Place the end of the rope on one side of the clamp and use the live end of the rope to form the eye to the appropriate size needed.

The rope should be positioned in the clamp as shown.

If you plan on attaching it around another object, check to make sure that the eye does not exceed an included angle larger than 30 degrees.

Smaller angles and larger eyes will provide for a stronger termination.
Place the other side of the clamp on top and make sure that the screws are properly aligned with the threaded portion of the clamp.

While squeezing both sides of the clamp together, flip the clamp over, and begin tightening the screws while alternating between the two.

Double-check that the rope is not protruding from the sides of the clamp. Tuck in any protruding rope with a flat head screwdriver or similar tool.

Do not over tighten the screws. It may reduce the strength of the termination.

When installed correctly the clamp and rope should look as shown.

Booster Clamps

For an even stronger connection, a booster clamp assembly can be installed.

First, disassemble a booster clamp and place the non-threaded side on a flat surface facing up with the screws protruding through both holes.

Place the dead end of the rope in the booster clamp so that there are two clamp lengths of rope extending past the clamp.

Use the live end of the rope to form an eye to the desired size needed for your application and place the live end of the rope onto the other side of the clamp.

Assemble the booster clamp and make sure that the threaded side is correctly oriented in relation to the non threaded side.

Then, tighten the screws so that they are flush with the bottom of the clamp.
With the booster clamp in place, assemble a rope clamp to the dead and live end of the rope, as previously shown, and make sure that both legs of the rope are evenly tensioned between the two clamps.
When installed correctly, your booster clamp assembly should look as shown.

Adding a Thimble in your Termination

If you'd like to include a thimble in your termination to protect the ropes eye, follow the same procedure as with a soft eye, and make sure the thimble is snug and secured in the eye to prevent it from popping out.

Forming a Lap Splice with Ropeze

Along with forming eyes, Ropeze can also be used to join two separate links of rope together using a lap splice. This can be achieved using either two rope clamps, or for added strength, two rope clamps and two booster clamps.
Ropeze Lap Splice

When forming lap splices, all clamps should be placed at least a clamps length apart from one another.
