Abstract

An eye splice is disclosed for a hollow braid type of cord for use in a parachute shroud or the like. It comprises a bight 22 in the free end of the cord which is folded back to form an eye 16 with the bight extending through braided wall of the cord at an entry point 34 and then through the center to a take-out point 36 and then through the wall to provide a cinch loop 28 of the bight extending beyond the wall. The end of the standing part of the cord passes through and the cinch loop which is tight around the standing part.

  1. 1. The method of making an eye splice in a cord of the hollow braid type, said cord having a tubular wall and a hollow center, said method comprising the steps of:forming a bight in the free end of a standing part of the cord,inserting the bight through the wall on the standing part into the hollow center at an entry point and through the hollow center to a take-out point on the standing part,extracting a loop of said bight through said wall at said take-out point leaving an overlap section of the standing part surrounding the free end of said bight between said entry point and said take-out point, thereby forming an eye, and said eye and bight being on the opposite sides of said overlap section,passing the standing part through the loop of said bight,and tightening said bight around said standing part.
  2. 4.4. An eye splice in a cord of the hollow braid type having a tubular wall and a hollow center, said eye splice comprising:a bight in the free end of a standing part of the cord,a loop between said bight and said standing part forming an eye, said bight extending through the wall on the standing part into the hollow center at an entry point and thence through the hollow center to a take-out point and thence through the wall at the take-out point with said free end remaining in said hollow center extending substantially to said entry point,and the standing part passing through said bight with the bight being tight around said standing part,whereby an eye splice is formed with said eye being fixed relative to said standing part.
