Knots will reduce the strength of your ropes
Splicing techniques will reduce less the strength of a rope
Always inspect ropes for kinks or core damage before use
Do not step on the rope
Always store in dry, safe and regular humidity conditions
Always consider a design factor/working load for your system. The maximum load of the rope for human rigging should never exceed the 25% (European Standard) or 20% (American Standard) of the rope's minimum breaking load
Always take in consideration dynamic loads for human rigging (acceleration and deceleration charges, which will multiply the load applied to the rigging)
