What is the best way to secure a rope around a thimble? This particlular rope (static kernmantle) isn't splicable, so I was thinking either rope clamps or stiching.
Definitely a good thing to do, IMO.
If option 2 is the second pic. I cant say I would trust it in a load, unload situation that a swing could place on a rope.I like option 2 if you can do it in a way that you feel comfortable with strength wise.
