Directional 8 Knot Warning

Never load this knot between the two ends of the rope without a load in the bight of rope! During a dynamic event the bight will slip at a high rate of speed which produces enough heat from friction to melt through the rope. If this knot is not properly used there is about a 50 to 60% reduction in the ropes strength, this result will not appear in a slow pull test, just under drop testing.
