This also applies to cable, chain, and webbing.
Gear that is anchored includes anchors, rocks, trees, tripods, trucks, etc.
A "bight" is a simple loop in a rope that does not cross itself.
A "bend" is a knot that joins two ropes together. Bends can only be attached to the end of a rope.
A "hitch" is a type of knot that must be tied around another object.
"Descending devices" (e.g., ATCs, Brake Bar Racks, Figure 8s, Rescue 8s, etc) create friction as their primary purpose. The friction in descending devices is always considered when calculating forces.
The "Safety Factor" is the ratio between the gear's breaking strength and the maximum load applied to the gear (e.g., 5:1).
What do you want to do?
Do one of the following:
When you drag the middle of a piece of webbing, a red dot appears to show you that you are dragging the webbing. Some gear, such as the water knot (which is a bend) and rope joiners, can only connect to the end of webbing.
Click your right mouse button on the webbing to display its shortcut menu.
You can change properties such as the color, strength, width, etc of webbing in the properties pane. Knots that are attached to webbing are displayed in the same color as the webbing. Learn how to specify the width of webbing in mm, cm, and inches.
Learn about the knots that can be connected to webbing.
You can use rope joiners to invisibly connect the ends of webbing. This is a great way to create a webbing "runner."
