Quick Splice all Types of Rope

You can even splice un-spliceable braided rope
I had this idea a while back and finally tried it...
It works really well !!! Basically I made a loop in a rope with a tail around 18 inches long...You take a piece of rope 18 inches long, melt the ends then lay it along side the 18 inch long tail... You then mouse/whip the bitter end of the short rope to the outside of the eye, and mouse/whip all three strands together...You then Braid the three strands together making a splice and whip/mouse the end of the splice !!!
This way you can "splice" un-spliceable braided rope!!!
I would not use it as an anchor line as It has not yet been break tested...however for emergency repair it works very well!!!
