Description

The round lashing (also known as vertical lashing) is used to join two poles together to extend their length.

Use

Used to join two poles together to extend their length. The objective is to combine the spars
together to make a longer length that is as rigid as possible.

Security

For increased security you can add two wedges between the poles, one above and one below the
lashing. This makes the lashing really tight.
