How to Coil a Rope

This particular method of coiling a rope is probably my preferred method. Firstly, the rope is double (folded in half). Thereby instantly reducing the amount of coiling required. Once the rope has been coiled, the original bight that was formed when doubling the rope, is wrapped around the coils. This not only locks the coils in place, but it also creates a nice loop from which the coil can be carried or hung from a hook. Also when the coiled rope is required for use, it is very quick to undo the locking part of the rope.
