    double fixed eye/ locked brummel help

    Im learning some cordage tricks and cant figure out how to make two fixed eyes or locked brummels on one piece of cord. For now Im using Zing it, and can acheive half of it but get stuck when trying to pull that other fixed eye through that tiny hole...or am I way off base.


    Can anybody line me out/ point me.to a good tutorial. I tried the search but I might have the terminology wrong.


    Thanks!

    I don't know if there's a tutorial, but I've done it myself. You actually need to do something which is hard to explain. After pulling the end through, you need to turn the resultant loop inside out. I'll look around for a video or something, but I can assure you it can be done. I have done two double ended locked brummel loops myself.
    It's bad luck to be superstitious.

    Good work on getting it through. I just found some instructions, just in case it helps someone else. These are instructions for making a locked brummel loop when you don't have access to the other end of the rope.

    Here you go.

    Cool, appreciate it. I just fought the other fixed eye through like a locked brummel then burried my "tail". It worked. Just practicing. Hope that made sense.
