    Bend to connect shockcord to Zing-it

    I've searched for a couple of hours now...

    Someone started a thread on a bend (knot) that is used to attache the end of a length of shockcord to a length of Zing-It (or some other small diameter rope).

    I'm not looking for this thread. The thread had pictures of a knot that looked similar to a sheet bend.

    Does anyone have that thread saved?

    Thanks guys.

    Thats it! Thanks Running Feather... you have time to put out fires AND help out others in need.

    Are you a superhero?

    Going to use this knot to modify the netting shock cord on my newly ordered Switchback Light Hiker.

    I carry several pieces of paracord with me at all times. Sometimes while idling in restaurants I practice with my hands under the table so, God forbid I need to, I can tie knots in the dark

    You're welcome!

    No.

    Really sweet simple knot/bend by the way.

    Shane, here is a picture of one of my DIY underquilts with the Albright knot. I also use this knot in fly fishing to attach my backing to the fly line.
