    Question What to do with remaining cord while using Ring Buckles.

    So, I began with the ringbuckles and long straps system on my HH, changed to gardahitch and shorter straps, and back to the ringbuckles with long straps. Still, I don't want to cut or remove the ropes, even though i will eventually remove them.

    I was wondering if someone could recommend some way to wrap this remaining rope arround it self before the knot to the rings -ive seen some pictures of someone who did it really nice but I have not been able to find them again, i tried to do it but the wrap would undo itself.

    Thanks in advance.

    Daisy chain it or just wrap it around your hand a few time and finish with a half-hitch.

    If you have enough room, a series of half hitches makes a nice decoration.
