Hi name is Dan and I’m here with Expert Village
today to show you how to tie square lashing. It is very useful if you need to tie two poles
or sticks in a right angle to each other. Again by tyeing a simple clove hitch. Attach
it the vertical pole
make sure you clove hitch is tight. Now take the working end and wrap over the horizontal
piece and go around the back and then go down around your horizontal piece. Now wrap around
and under and repeat the previous steps.
Be sure to pull as tight as possible in order to secure your lashing. A frappeing turn is
going to go simply around your turns. Every time you go around make sure to pull it very
This could be made off or once you finish three turn and you are frappeing make another
clove hitch to finish your lashing off. That is the square lashing.
