Roll Cage Wrap

A while ago I saw some pics of someone who had wrapped their rollcage with some kind of 550 cord tied into knots. I can't find the pics of that rollcage or the name of the knot. I'd appreciate if anyone can help if they know what I am talking about.

Nevermind, I found what I was looking for. The thread was called "TJ on the Road" and the knot was coxcombing. Now I can sleep tonight.

About half way through page 2. The dude's rig is pretty sick overall.

That looks really good... Maybe if I'm bored someday I'll do that to the passenger Oh $hit handle...

It really depends on the diameter of the bar for how much cord it takes. I used a little over 500' to complete the cage. I did only straight runs no bends. The french coxcomb doesn't look as good over bends. A good topbraid looks great over bends but not over any lenth. I also liked the look ove the green cord to match my rig with the powdercoat black bars.

I tucked and superglued the ends to give it a clean anchor. On the boat we used square not anchors and they hold tight but buch up. I was really going for a smooth clean look.

I don't have a good pick of the anchor this is the best I have.





This mod is not for the faint at heart. You will spend hours and hours doing this. I have about 15 hours maybe more in my roll cage. and wear gloves.

That is pretty sick. I haven't done any over any distance. I do like it though. I may do some small sections for fun.

A french coxcomb is what I call a rolling half hitch. If you reverse the half hitch on every other loop you can get two combs that criss cross over the bar. bad news is it will take twice as long because you are tyeing twice the knots.

Not trying to drive myself insane. I was a Marine not a sailor. Better cutting the ropes than tieing them.

No I was just practicing at work. I need to get some green or black. Some dude had a 1000' roll of bright red and that was how all of this started. Me and another guy were arguing over the knot that you had tied, don't remember what he called it but I knew it wasn't right. Damn jarheads are so stubborn. That was what led me to this thread and now it is going to lead me to do my roll cage as well.

He just thought that it was a series of half hitches.

He's right, or at least that's one way to do it. I've done it before using leather cord instead of paracord to make a hand grip on a walking stick and just used half hitches to make it. It looked good, gave awesome grip, and was durable too. There may be other ways to do it, but using half hitches worked well for me.

French coxcombing is a series of rolling half hitches.

I single handedly saved the lives of an entire Marine platoon while I was in the Navy.


I showed them how to get to the chow hall.

Now I know that one is a lie because a Marine would never have to get directions while on land from a squid.

Here you go Nick. I figured what the hell. The only color I could get for free at the time from work is red so I did my "Oh Sh!t Handle." Let me know what you think. I cleaned it up with Turk's Heads on both ends. I know it's a little bit off but I am not going back through all of that headache. Especially the Turk's Heads.

I just realized that I am a complete loser for spending the better part of the last 2 hours of a Thursday night tying knots. That's what happens when you have a 2 year old and a wife.

Looks good. How much cord did you use?

It wasn't as much as I thought. I just pulled probably 30' off the reel and went from there. The hardest part was getting the 1st Turk's Head with all of that tail flapping around, I rolled straight into the coxcombing after the TH. The one on the right I just did after I ended the coxcombing. I just smashed it right up tight to the coxcombing.

That definitely convinced me that the roll bars will NOT be done. I'll just stick with the factory padding.

I like the Turks Head on the ends. We used that quite a bit on coffee cups.
