How does cable lacing work?
Cable laces are a thin cord used to join cables together with a series of stitches or knots. When it comes to the cable lacing process itself, there are a range of different styles, including traditional running lock stitches; continuous lacing made from a series of overhand knots; and spot ties, which combine clove hitches with reef knots to bind the lace together.
Types of cable lacing
Waxed cord is the most traditional kind of cable lace. Modern flat lace tapes are made from a variety of materials, including nylon, polyester, Teflon or fibreglass.
