Guest Posted December 12, 2016 Share #1 Posted December 12, 2016 First of all, I hope the pictures are attached to this post. It is my first try at it. I have seen the experts tie rat lines and I am envious of their skill. I have some experience but not much and became frustrated with the poor quality I could achieve. I dreaded tying ratlines and almost gave up. This might not be new but I finally stumbled on a simple idea and I am now happy with my work [although my speed remains poor]. It is simply two pieces of square stock the size of the ratline spacing clamped in place to use as a guide. I cemented a strip of fine grit sandpaper to one side of each square. In clamping the squares together with the sand paper on the inside the lines are held firm and I did not have to worry about the "hour glass effect" to the main lines. I also found I could easily tighten the knots to secure them in place. If you are a novice like me and have issues with your rat lines this may work for you like it did for me.
