Rope Splicing Kit - Yacht & Dinghy Ropes

D-Splicers Fixed Handle Splicing Needles are used across the world by professional and amateur splicers alike. This set comes with four needles to match the rope sizes you are working with along with an exchangeable handle. These needles complement the traditional fids for use in modern rope splicing. 

Suitable for both double and single braid ropes the needles make it easy to pull cores and covers back on themselves as part of the splice. The needle is designed to grip the rope in the metal legs allowing you to pull it through itself or the cover/core. The length of the needles also ensures you can sufficiently bury the ends to make a neat taper.  

The set comes with 4 needles, two small and two medium, ideal for smaller diameter lines upto 5mm and situations where standard needles aren't practical. 

The ultralight needles are compact enough to be carried as part of your everyday rigging / spares bag to help undertake tasks on the boat.

Used by the Rope44 Splicing team.

The kit is supplied in a robust plastic tube for ease of storage and transportation. Spare needles are available. Please contact us if you require replacements.

Usage Tip

  • If pulling the core or cover through becomes difficult, stop and taper the offending end. This will make splicing significantly easier and prevent you from breaking needles.
  • Never attach the needle to a door handle, cleat or similar to get an extra purchase. If the end is not pulling through….taper, taper, taper
