Splicing tool made of special braiding to get best possible pulling power on the cover of a rope
The D-Slack ropecover-milkingstrop is a durable and easy-to-use splicing tool that is attached around the cover of a doublebraided rope and thus can deliver the necessary force onto the coverbraiding. That way a tight cover can be milked over a thick or spliced core and the slack will be taken out of the cover.
D-Slack is made from special fibres combined in a single, hollow braid which gives it the exceptional grip on any rope. This strop has two spliced eyes which are used for pulling. The middle part will be fxed with a clove hitch around the rope and can deliver the pulling power in the cover. The D-Slack is probably the most powerful trick to get the necessary force best possible into a tight cover and milk it over a splice.
The D-Slack from D-Splicer is available in two sizes for ropes from 4mm to 16mm in diameter. Always included is a full coloured instructions which contains photos and text explaining step-by-step how to use this splicing tool.

Why is this splicing tool called D-Slack?
The D-Slack helps to get the loose cover over the core of a rope or to milk it in a certain direction. Such loose cover is called Slack and because the tool is necessary to work it, it is been named after the slack.
