MBL = Marlow minimum break load

N.B. The inner cover plait is not load bearing and a certain amount is removed as part of the core dependent splice resulting in a reduced diameter over a short length. Although it looks thin, the strength of the splice and the rope is not compromised.

The Polyester cover can be permanently removed to produce a cover stripped Dyneema core only loop splice.

Snapshackles can then be retrofitted/changed over, attached using a simple a cow hitch - pass the loop through the eye of the shackle, over the top and back down to the rope end.
