Double Sheet Bend
(Double Flag Bend, Double Common Bend)
The Double Sheetbend is a more secure form of the Sheetbend.
- The thicker rope of the two is used to form a bight, and the thinner rope is passed up through the bight, around the back of the bight, around again before tucking under itself.
- Tip. It is particularly useful when the thickness of the two ropes varies considerably, or when a more secure Sheetbend is required.
