Knotted Lacing (lug version)
A lug version of Knotted Lacing. Adding an overhand knot at each crossover increases friction and keeps the lacing much firmer. Ideal for tightening ice skates, rollerblades, etc.
• Begin straight across the bottom (grey section) and up through both bottom lugs.
• The ends are crossed, then knotted with a single overhand knot, which is identical to the Starting Knot.
• The ends then continue across to the opposite sides, where they run up through the next higher set of lugs.
• Repeat crossing and knotting until lacing is completed.
Keeps lacing tight
Harder to loosen
2% shorter ends (approx.)
With each stage of this lacing given a single overhand knot, the result is a very firm lacing. This is of most benefit during tightening, as the lower sections are less inclined to loosen in the process, making it ideal for tightening ice skates, rollerblades, etc.
