Round Lashing Technique

Start with a Clove Hitch around both poles. Wrap six or eight turns around the two poles. Finish with another Clove Hitch. Two Round Lashings can be used to make a longer pole.

Round Lashing Details

Use: The Round Lashing is similar to the one described by Ashley for scaffolding (ABOK # 2103, p 342) It is used to lash two parallel spars together to make a longer one.

Increased Security: Many descriptions describe the difficulty of making the lashing tight enough to be secure. A common recommendation is to hammer two wedges between the poles, one above and one below the lashing. This tightens the lashing and makes it more secure.

Disclaimer: Any activity that involves ropes is potentially hazardous. Lives may be at risk - possibly your own. Considerable attention and effort have been made to ensure that these descriptions are accurate. However, many critical factors cannot be controlled, including: the choice of materials; the age, size, and condition of ropes; and the accuracy with which these descriptions have been followed. No responsibility is accepted for incidents arising from the use of this material.
