* Knots and abrupt bends significantly reduce the strength of all ropes and lowers the maximum working load.
** Working load is based on static or moderately dynamic lifting/pulling operations. Instant changes in load up or down in excess of 10% of the rope's rated working load constitutes hazardous shock load and would void normal working load recommendation. Consult Yale Cordage for guidelines for working loads and safe use of rope.
