Yale Wire Basket Fid
The Yale carrier fid works like a Chinese finger trap and is designed for splicing hollow braid rope like tenex and tREX. Works best for rope 3/8" to 1/2" in diameter, but it can be used for either size of LIMB-SAVER Synthetic Cable.
The Yale Wire Basket Fid works off the principle of a Chinese finger trap: with your hand or fingers bunch up the wire basket, insert cordage . The wire basket springs back on the cordage, allowing you to easily complete a splice. When done, simply bunch up the wire, and remove the cordage.
