A versatackle is a way of simulating a block and tackle without actual pulleys or deadeyes.
The Versatackle is a self-locking method of gaining mechanical advantage with rope much like a block and tackle.
Used for binding, clamping, pulling or tying down the load.
The knot system is self-locking, meaning that just by pulling the free end and letting go, the Versatackle’s internal
friction will hold the load. For ekstra security tie off the free end.
1. Make a loop knot (for example alpine butterfly) on one end of the rope and another loop knot in the middle,
just longer than the area to be bound.
2. Pass the working end through the loop knot on the other end, then pass it back through the other loop.
3. Go through each loop the same direction each time for best results.
4. Repeat until there are two or three complete passes (two or three ropes in each loop).
5. Pull on the working end, and work out the slack to tighten.
