Step 1, connect a screw-link to one end of the Web-O-Lette then tie a clove hitch or figure eight knot on the same side of the screw-link. Place the guiding line side of the rope through the screw-link and close it. Make a bight of rope about 4 to 5 feet long and tie an alpine butterfly knot next to the screw-link.
