To neatly finish off the end of a twisted line, tape the main body of line 6 crowns from its end to keep it from unraveling. Unlay the strands and tape ends. Lay the right-hand strand across the other two as shown.
Tuck the left-hand strand over the first strand, behind the center strand and back over the right-hand strand. Remove tape from main line and pull all strands snug.
Tuck the strands in sequence, over and under the strands in the main body of the line, working against the twist as in the short splice. Clip protruding ends and roll the splice to smooth out.
