You will know it is right if it won't move without you undoing it. Did tree work once upon a time, and used that knot extensively, even trusting my life to it while tree climbing.
If you get the starting loop correct, there's an old saying that helps you remember - with the free end in hand - "the rabbit goes out the hole, around the tree, and back into the hole." Pull tight from both ends. This should form a loop that will not come loose til you undo it.
Best way is to call Prism and ask for "tech support" to walk you through it, or you can just hang loose until someone who flies a 4D chimes in here. The folks at Prism are usually friendly and helpful.
I tried Googling the info, but only found the same manual you did.
Mines 1200 miles east of me or I’d take it apart and get pics of it. I’ll be home next week to do so if you still need help figuring out the way it came from prism. Lots of great ideas here too. Good luck
Thanks for your help everyone:) I knew I could depend of you guys! Really appreciate how helpful you all are.
Wayne, I really like that bowline knot, that will come in handy for numerous things, thanks. One of my daughters and I just practiced it, think we've got the hang of it.
SHBKF, phenomenal photo!!!! And too funny on the wife story. My daughter let the cat out of the bag and told hubby about the new kite;) But his suggestion for the wingtips, despite his knowledge of nautical knots, was, wait for it...duct tape;)
And yes, the cord length is far from ample to get fancy.
And thanks Rob, here's a picture of it. Looking forward to seeing you and your son one day at the beach:)
