how to tie a prusik on wire rope

Climbers can benefit from the simple yet practical knot known as the prusik. This friction hitch provides a secure means of attaching a loop of cord to a rope, which can be used for climbing or stretching out the length of any rope – no matter how much tension is exerted, the knot can be quickly and easily undone.

To secure a prusik on a wire rope, begin by making a loop roughly 10 inches from the end of the cord. Then, thread the cord’s loose end through the loop to create a second hoop. Now, loop the cord around the wire rope 7 times before weaving it through the formed hoop. Lastly, tug the dangling end of the cord to draw the knot tightly together.

To achieve the most secure hold, a Prusik Knot functions by exploiting accumulated friction. Adding more wraps to the rope intensifies the friction and therefore, the grip – however, too many can make releasing the knot unwieldy. Consequently, finding the correct harmony between tension and ease is essential.

Once you are done with the ‘tying the knot’ process, tugging on the wire rope should allow you to check the strength of your knot. If you’ve done it correctly then the prusik loop will firmly remain affixed to the rope. All that is required to undo your knot is a swiftpull on the cord’s end. With a bit of practice, tying and untying a prusik will become almost second-nature.
