1 A method of taking out a large number of turns in a rope after it has been unduly twisted. If the turns are left handed, the rope is coiled down left handed and the end dipped through the coil. If the coil is then hauled out, the turns will be taken out. If the turns are right handed the rope is coiled down right handed, and the same process will remove the turns.
2 A method of joining two ropes when they have an eye spliced into their ends.
