Tackled Gleipnir Hitch
« on: November 03, 2015, 02:59:10 PM »
Whilst I was fiddling with a TackleClamp gripping hitch (http://igkt.net/sm/index.php?topic=3813.msg22511#msg22511),
I tried to lock the ends using a Gleipnir lock mechanism and I obtained a Tackled Gleipnir hitch/binder.
Look at the attached picture.
It's TIB but it's not so easy to untie (I try to move only one of the two ends to unlock the other): it seems interesting.
Has anyone tied/seen it before?
What do you think about it?
Variation: we can reduce the number of tackles from 3 to 2 (only 1 "Gleipnir" and 1 "U" instead of 1"Gleipnir" and 2 "U" )
ciao,
s.

Xarax had advocated --and I concur in this-- that the
gripping turn ("turNip") be inverted --i.e., oriented
such that its ends are away from the bound surface,
and press the structure's tails against it; you might find
that this works better here.

And one of the problems with this "tackle" structure, IMO,
is that the center wrapping is pulled from both sides (of
itself) whereas the partner bight-legs to it each get just
one direction's pull, and so the center part should be
tightened overly, in the tackleclamp.  Now, in THIS
structure, having that concentrated tightening is exactly
what is wanted for the turNip --which will in any case
be putting more material on this part of knot.

Thanks for your notes, Dan.
I think you referred to this variation (attached picture)
