Lashing Information

Page28 LashingsLearning the needed skills and becoming familiar with how things are done is often referred to as “KNOWING THE ROPES,” necessary before the real fun can begin!

We use lashings to bind two or more poles together to make a structure. Most lashings commonly consist of a recommended number of “wraps” around the poles, and then a recommended number of “fraps” between the poles and around the “wraps.”

Depending upon geographic location and personal preferences, individuals might use different versions of lashings to get the job done.
