Abok #582 (blimp) based, adjustable (and fixed) eyeknot
« on: January 13, 2022, 06:03:02 PM »
There have been some references about the blimp stopper knot in this forum.

All one has to do is to feed the working end through the blimp, closed form, nipping structure, for the adjustable variant, or to tie the blimp with a bight (for the fixed loopknot variation, third fourth image).

It appears that this nipping component fulfills these two requirements ....

1. to block the tail movement

2.to untie/adjust easily after heavy loading

It certainly features a Zeppelin-like look, i should really hope it functions as one,  too  :D.

The fixed loop variant has a rather bulky footprint, and i guess it has to be loaded from both Sparts concurrently, for best performance.

The follow through tying method might be quite challenging as well.

...
... is a fig.8 knot with twinned ends of both
end brought back through the knot.  And, yes, it
does have that zep-like look!  (and try it w/tape?!)

Indeed, nice way of forming it Dan, provided that one has access to the SPArts!

You also gave me a brainwave of retucking one of the Sparts (doesn't matter which, it is kind of symmetrical) back through the stopper knot to get an unknotted (TIB) structure.

Just pull up the two ends, and you'll get a fresh, TIB, two wrap, hitch.

Sorry ain't got any photos right now, but you get my point  ;).
