(b) Cut a length of type IV coreless nylon cord 24 inches longer than the damaged portion removed in 1
above, for use as splice material.
(c) Taper-cut each end of the cord length and the ends of the original line from which the damaged
portion was removed.
(d) Using an authorized marking aid of contrasting color, mark the splice material at points 6 an 12
inches from each end. Also mark the original line length at points 6 and 12 inches from each cut
(e) Insert a splicing aid into the body of the original line length at one 12-inch mark. Work the splicing
aid through the cord body and to the outside at the 6-inch mark.
(f) Thread and secure one end of the splice material to the splicing aid (A, figure 2-113).
(g) Pull the threaded splicing aid back into the line and back through the line body until the 6-inch mark
on the attached end of the splice material is alined with the 6-inch mark on the original line end being
(h) Hold the original line and the splice material at the alined 6-inch marks and continue pulling the
splicing aid until the attached splice material end protrudes from the line body at the 12-inch mark,
the point of original splicing aid insertion. Remove the attached splice material end from the splicing
(i) While holding the splice at the alined 6-inch marks, stretch the original line to allow the protruding
splice material end to recede into the line body.
(j) Insert the splicing aid into the splice material body at the 12-inch mark nearest the alined 6-inch
marks. Work the splicing aid through the body of the splice material and to the outside at the alined
(k) Attach the adjacent tapered line end to the splicing aid (B, figure 2-113) and pull the splicing aid back
into the splice material body.
(l) Pull the splicing aid back through the splice material unit the attached line end protrudes from the 12-
inch mark, the point of splicing aid insertion. Remove the attached line end from the splicing aid.
(m) Grasp the splice material free end and the original line, and stretch the material to allow the
protruding line end to recede into the body of the splice material.
(n) Using the procedures in (e) through (m), above, splice the free end of the splice material to the
remaining cut end of the original line.
(o) Secure each end of the line splice by stitching across each set of alined 6-inch marks (C, figure
2-113). Stitching will be made with a light-duty sewing machine using size E nylon thread, 7 to 11
stitches per inch.
