Instructions for tying a D-Loop rope:
Step 1. Tie and burn the first half of the loop, grip the tag end of the D-Loop cord in the specially designed separated jaw. This jaw will grip the cord tightly without damaging the cord unlike conventional pliers.
Step 2. While maintaining a grip on the cord, wrap the D-Loop cord around the bottom jaw, then up and around the vertical leverage cleat. Then simply pull away from the bow to tighten the first knot.
Step 3. Size and tie the loop, then burn the second knot. The final stretch is performed by placing the side jaw between the serving and the D-Loop cord. Squeeze the handles as needed to separate the jaw and stretch the cord. Once tightened, the D-Loop cannot easily be adjusted, so be careful not to over-tighten the cord.
