To see other ringbolt photos go to http://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=5473.0 (http://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=5473.0) in his forum

This is how I did it
With standing end on left of ring bring Working End through ring and make half hitch.

Bring WE through ring and from left to right through crossing point and pull snug

Bring WE through ring and repeat above steps

When there is roon for only one more hitch bring WE through the ring and UP through the loop holding the Standing End

Next bring WE through the crossing point and DOWN through the loop

Pull the standing End down through the loop and the hitching is complete.  The ends may be glued or held in place with a contrasting color Turks Head knot

                                                                  OR
Turks Head tied with two ends
Make a clockwise loop with left end in front of ring and a counter-clockwise loop with the right end through the loop

Bring each end over the strand and through the corresponding loops on top

Bring each end down across one strand and through the loop on the bottom

The Turks Head tied with two ends is complete.  You can tighten it up and hide the ends or double it by bring each end parallel to the strand just below it

What a well done tutorial Tony !
Thank you very much for the work and sharing it.

Just asking... :)

As I mentioned the finishing knot can be doubled (or even tripled) by following parallel to the indicated strand. Cut the ends close to the knot and push them under the knot to hide them.

If you would like, I can make it a .pdf file and email it you. Then you could place it anywhere.
Just let me know.
