Thread: Help! My knot keeps slipping!
11-09-2006, 03:07 PM #35
For the starting knot, if you only have three loops, try four to five loops. The result is to make starting knot much bigger and hence can't slip into the grommet.
For normal knots, you can tie a single half-hitch knot first and slightly tension. Afterward, add a pro knot over the tensioned single half-hitch knot and apply slight tension.
Hope this helps.

Actually, you can use a combination of sewing needle (very small diameter) and sewing threads and tooth floss to get the cross string into the shared grommet. There are a few threads on this topic.
For most shared grommets, you can rely on the tooth floss method. You can see the tooth floss in action here: http://www.badmintoncentral.com/foru...t=22331&page=7
For the very tight shared grommets, you need the help of the sewing needle and thread and tooth floss as the last step.

A little attention to detail also goes a long way in working with shared grommets. It's often the case that the existing string sits more towards one side than the other (i.e., upper or lower portion). So, it's easier to thread the other string through the bigger gap rather than try to muscle it in through the smaller one.
Of course, some racquets just have really tight grommets to begin with (e.g., AT700) that make things difficult. You can use Pete's toothfloss technique. I keep a scrap of BG70Pro around to use as a sort of plastic awl. A Ti-coated string also works quite well because it's slippy. So, whenever I need it a scrap string with a tube of Chapstick and a little patience never fail. But, really, most times the gap is there if you look for it.

Why make life complicated? Just start from the main (middle) and alternate each pull and do away with the starting knot regardless of 1 piece of 2 piece stringing method.
