Make 3 loops around the post, and leave about 50cm free to make the knot
Wrap the line 3 times around itself, keeping the line in the other hand
Wrap the line 3 times around itself again in the other direction, towards the end post
Wrap the line 3 times around the loops on the end post tucking the end under the loops
You must adjust your tensioner with the right length - Polyamide: 3% of the total length installed - Polyester: 1% of the total length installed.
To tension the line, keep the line in one hand and, insert it inside the tensioner.
Fix the clip (cable puller) onto the line, and you can start to tension the line.
You must respect the required tension - Polyamide: 3% of the total length installed (for exemple 3m for 100m row) - Polyester: 1% of the total length installed (for exemple 1m for 100m row).
Once you tensioned ISL, you can start to make the endpost knot.
END TO END KNOT
Fix the clips (cable pullers) onto the lines, and you can start to join the lines. Leave about 20 cm on both lines to make the knot.
Make 3 loops with the first line around the second line, and leave about 20cm free on the second one to make the knot.
Repeat the process with the other one. Finish rolling the line in the center of the knot. Release the rope tensioner.
