LIROS Octoplait Nylon V Bridles are available to purchase in set lengths, spliced to order by the Jimmy Green Rigging Team
The Jimmy Green Rigging Team splice and finish Octoplait Nylon V Bridles in house from LIROS Octoplait Nylon article 01058
LIROS Octoplait bridles are designed to attach a towing line, para anchor rode or yacht drogue warp
The bridle is made up from a single length of LIROS Octoplait White Nylon with a soft loop splice in each end and a stainless steel thimble spliced into the centre of the rope.
The rope is therefore continuous which is a far better solution than splicing 2 ropes together.
For this reason, a bridle is not advisable in 3 strand nylon
Bridles divide the load between two attachment points
By transferring the load to the leeward side of the vessel as it attempts to broach or yaw, the bridle dampens the effects of both actions.
The length of the bridle tails relates to the distance between the end loop bearing edge and the centre eye splice.
