Single Line Attachment
This larks head knot is found almost every place a line is attached to
a kite. When attaching a line to a single line kite use the larks head
knot to attach a fishing swivel to the end of your line. You then attach
the swivel to your kite. The swivel will prevent the line from twisting
when the kite does loops and dives. This method allows you to use the
same line with a variety of kites, removing and attaching the line with
ease. Never tie a line to your kite bridle point!
Dual line Attachment
With dual line kites attach your line directly to the bridle with a larks
head knot. There is no need for swivels on dual line kites. Dual line
kite lines do not generally twist when flying, when you do a loop one
way you then return to where you began with the kite to fly in a straight
line. This move will not twist your lines. Swivels will add additional
weight to your kite that may effect the flight of your kite.
If you purchase straps from Kiteworks, Canada I will put these lines on for you. If you purchase pre-sleeved line sets with straps included you will have to take the line off of the winder to get at the ends of the lines to attach the new loops. I will include these loops at no charge with your order.
Start by tying a simple four inch loop at the end of your kite line then follow the simple instructions below.
