Handling Rope

     
    Rope made from hemp, cotton or nylon is generally stored in a cool dry place for proper storage.  To prevent kinking it is usually coiled.  To prevent fraying or unraveling, the ends of a rope are bound with twine, tape, or heat shrink tubing.  The ends of plastic fiber ropes are often melted and fused solid. 
 
   If a load-bearing rope gets a sharp or sudden jolt or the rope shows signs of deteriorating, it is recommended that the rope be replaced immediately and should be discarded or only used for non-load-bearing tasks.
