T2C loop
« on: April 21, 2015, 04:44:14 PM »
In regard to recent posts concerning the importance of a knot easy to verify I present this loop who I believe fills the bill.
Its parallelism features are readily spotted.
The first nipping turn encircles 3 rope's diameter.

If he reads, I would very like to have Mark Gommers'point of view on this submission...

By design the twisted lower collar (and nipping turn) more robust than a simple collar in that form does two functions. It helps creating a nice shrinking movement of the nub in ring loading situations and it protects the integrity of the construction (deformation).
Try and pull both legs of the eye at a 180 angle to observe the behavior.

It's also TIB, an impervious to jamming (my claim :) :)) if well dress.

I do not see the reason this collar should be twisted like this...

The third paragraph of my "edited" first post explains that.
A simple collar when expended by both legs (opposite 180 pull) deforme badly the whole structure.
I believe the construction is sound as it is now.
